Website Improvements

We are currently developing the website to improve our information, the way you can find information and to deliver more services online allowing you to access those services in a way that suits you.

Submitted an application - what happens now?

Your application is checked and registered

We aim to check your application within 3 working days of receiving it when we  will contact you if further information is required or, if your application is complete we will register it. As at the 31st August 2014 we are validating all applications within 1.7 days on average. 

We will provide you with your application reference number, the name of the planning officer who will be dealing with your application, a target date for a decision and a green site notice which you should display on or near the application site.

All of the information submitted with your application, unless confidential, is published on our planning online system.

We consult with neighbours who could be affected by the proposed development and statutory consultees as determined by the type of application. You can see who we have consulted and any comments received through the planning online system.

All consultees that we write to have three weeks to submit their comments.

There is also statutory requirement for some applications to be advertised in a local newspaper and for a site notice to be displayed on or near the application site.
