Planning and building control

Conservation or listed building advice
The council no longer offers a conservation or listed building advice service. If you need advice, we would suggest that you consider contacting a local  heritage consultant. The council is unable to recommend anyone and we do not keep a list of approved consultants.

Planning Duty Officer - Christmas and New year times
There will be no Planning Duty Officer on Thursday 13 December. Over the holiday period there will be no  Duty Officer from Friday 21 December 2018 until Tuesday 1 January 2019.  The Planning Duty Officer service will resume on Wednesday 2 January 2019 9.30am to 12.30pm. A full list of times when our offices are open is available on the Christmas and New Year opening times page.
