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.
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. We are currently receiving high volumes of applications. Our turnaround times are hitting three to four weeks for initial validation. Officers may require an extension of time to be agreed to enable your application to be properly considered. Please bear with us during this unprecedented time. We are working hard to resolve the matter.
Building Control continues to operate as a service. Please read the Service changes document before booking a site inspection.
