Planning Applications

Submission - Guidance - Planning Forms - Contacts

Planning Services consider a number of things when looking at planning applications:

  • Development Management - responsible for deciding on planning applications and enforcement issues, guided by policies and briefs, government guidance and individual merits of a proposal.
  • Planning Policy - responsible for the preparation of documents outlining the policies which the Council use in deciding Planning Applications.
  • Planning Enforcement - based within the Development Management Team, it is responsible for investigating any breach of planning.

By focusing on all these points, Planning Officers can ensure that development in the District is directed in the public's interest.
