Planning and building control
Temporary change to our planning service
From Wednesday 7 June until Wednesday 14 June 2023 we'll be working on reducing the planning applications backlog. During this time we will not respond to emails or telephone calls about planning applications. This is part of our plan to improve our future planning service. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
