Planning decisions & Committee
The Development Management, Highways Development Control and Building Control Services will all be working remotely for the foreseeable future. This will have some impact on service delivery.
Newly submitted applications of any kind will experience a delay in registration.
This is likely to be up to 3 weeks or more.
Please note that we cannot process paper applications please submit via the portal or the e-mail inboxes below.
All services will endeavour to progress existing work.
If you have a query please try and submit this via email directly to the officer. If you do not know the officer’s email address please use the following address: For planning matters email email@example.com, for building regulations email firstname.lastname@example.org and for highway development email email@example.com
How we reach a decision, who we consult, what type of decision can be made, how long it takes and what happens afterwards is explained in the document below.

How we deal with a planning application
We issue a formal decision notice to the applicant (or agent) for every application within 3 working days of the decision being made. It clearly states whether permission is granted or refused and any conditions attached.
