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.
In light of this, we would encourage the use of the frequently asked questions webpage and the planning portal website for general enquiries.
