Before you apply  

Due to COVID-19 and the need for staff to work remotely, we will no longer accept paper planning applications. Please use the Planning Portal or email to send or resend your applications.

We are currently receiving a high volume of planning applications and pre-application requests, it is therefore taking us longer than usual to validate and determine submissions.
We are doing all we can to reduce delays to customers, but your understanding at this time is appreciated.
