Due to the impact of the coronavirus our services are experiencing some delays with turnaround times.
Pre-application advice service: All 30 minute pre-booked appointments and meetings (face to face in the office) will now be changed to telephone appointments or can be held virtually via Microsoft Teams.
Site visit and site meeting options can still be requested, but meetings will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams or over the telephone. Site visits will be outdoors only and will continue to be socially distanced until such restrictions are lifted.
Validating Planning and Building Control applications may experience some delays. Please submit applications online or by email as the processing of paper applications will be delayed.
Development Control Committee meetings are now being held virtually: see Council meetings live stream
Building Control continues to operate as a service. Please read the Service changes document before booking a site inspection.
