Planning and building control
Important planning service update
We are currently receiving high numbers of planning applications, appeals and enquiries which means applications are taking longer to process and decisions are likely to be delayed beyond the anticipated time limits.
Planning officers are currently seeking extensions of time for determination.
We apologise for this delay and appreciate your continuing patience and understanding.
Planning applications and prior approval update
From Wednesday, 5 July 2023 certain planning applications and prior approval applications with 9.4km of North Meadow Special Area of Conservation, must be subject to an Appropriate Assessment under the Habitats Regulation 2017.
Please see our habitats, ecology and bio-diversity page to check if your application is affected.
