Planning and building control

Service status

During the week commencing 24 January 2022 our Planning Officers will be undertaking an intensive Clearance Week of a backlog of planning applications and will not be available to the public, but will endeavour to respond to enquiries from Monday 31 January 2022. Further information can be found here.

When you plan to do any work to your property you may need to apply for planning permission or building regulation approval. Where relevant we make sure that all building work complies with our planning policies. We make current planning applications public to allow residents to see what work is taking place. You can view the latest updates from the Planning Service in notes taken from the agents and developers liaison group meeting for March and June 2021.
