Planning pre-application advice service
The Planning Service is currently under-going a major review relating to the way it delivers its services.  As a consequence of this, resources are being focussed on specific areas of the service in the short term meaning that we can currently only provide a pre-application service for major planning applications. However, we hope to be able to offer pre-application service for all applications soon and will advise our customers when we are able to do so.  We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.


Find out how to apply for planning and building control permission, search for application information and get advice. You can also see information on listed buildings and find out about the Local Plan.
