We aim to work with you to ensure that your scheme can be delivered as smoothly as possible.
January 2021 update: Changes to the planning service during Covid-19 Please note: In response to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has advised that planning applications should be made online to avoid the need for staff to work in the office. This should continue to enable the remote processing of planning applications to continue as far as possible to support the latest social distancing guidelines. If you are unable to make your planning application online please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further advice.
