Planning is about making the best use of land for housing, business, industrial, agricultural, and recreation. It is about making places where people want to live, work and play, places which are safe and inviting, and places which are sustainable.
Please be aware that we are working hard to keep the planning service operating effectively in the face of unprecedented challenges. Our priority is to determine all applications where site visits have been undertaken. We have suspended all site visits and meetings at the moment and we are considering alternative ways of working to protect our staff and our residents. We have changed our procedures for Planning Committees, site notices, availability of information by hard copy and office availability. For more details on our revised processes, please see our FAQs Covid-19 impact on planning processes and bear with us at this difficult time. Thank you for your understanding.
