Apply for planning permission
Please be aware that the Planning Service has recently undertaken some changes to improve how we register and validate applications. We are in the process of training our teams in our new processes, which is integral to the success of our changes. We are making good progress, but unfortunately we do have a delay in getting applications through to the case officers for determination. Our delays are two – three weeks at present. We do apologise for any inconvenience caused and will continue to work hard to remedy this situation. (updated January 2016)
