Planning and Enforcement Site Visits

Planning Enforcement and Planning Officer site visits will only be carried out where it is considered absolutely essential by the officers and only where Covid 19 safety guidelines can be strictly adhered to.  The final decision on this rests with the Planning Development Manager and Principal Planning Officers.

We will endeavour to respond to your enquiry as soon as possible.

Pre-Application Advice

Planning Development Management will endeavour to continue to provide pre-application advice.  However, this will be in written form and electronic meetings only.  No face to face meetings will take place at the present time.


There will be no external face to face meetings taking place in connection with any planning development matter at the present time.

The Planning Section is responsible for processing planning applications and planning appeals, dealing with planning enforcement matters and preparing the Local Plan.
