This section offers information and advice about planning, building control and heritage. You can submit an online application for planning and building control permission and browse the latest applications. We encourage all applications – big or small – to take advantage of our free pre-application service before making a formal submission. We aim to work with you to ensure that your scheme can be delivered as smoothly as possible.
