Service update October 2018
Phone lines to officers will be open from Monday 15 October - case officers will be available between 2pm and 4pm Monday to Friday.
There remain ongoing challenges with a number of case officer caseloads which may mean you experience some delays in the timeliness of the service. We apologise for this and have put in place further measures to address this to improve timeliness of the service, reduce the number of live planning applications and the size of officer caseloads.
Thank you for your patience.

Planning peer challenges review
In March 2016, we had a full review of our Planning Authority. The review was organised by the Local Government Association and the Planning Advisory Service. It was carried out by trained officers and councillors from other councils.
