Our Planning section includes most of the reasons why people contact the council about planning and building regulations.

You can find out if you need permission, find out about and comment on planning applications, apply for planning permission and report development that doesn't follow regulations or have permission.

Pre-application advice is a paid for service. There are 5 levels of comprehensive advice, from householder advice to large scale pre-application agreements.

If the information in Planning does not answer your question, please contact us.

We operate a call back system for informal advice. We give general, verbal advice on the planning process and the council's planning policies on sites less than small scale major proposals.

If your query cannot be answered by phone or email an appointment can be made to see a planning officer.
