In line with national policy, we have adjusted our normal working practices and service delivery until further notice. The majority of our services remain operational and we are prioritising vulnerable residents.

We provide a pre-application advice service. This can help you establish whether your development is acceptable in principle before submitting a formal planning application. This way any key planning issues and how to address them can be identified early on and applications can be processed more quickly. A fee is payable for this service.
