The Development Management Section is responsible for determining your planning applications. These pages enable you to interact with the service; obtain necessary information and guidance and view/comment on the planning applications themselves.
Our planning applications list is updated each week and made available online via our Public Access for Planning service, where you can also view, track and comment on applications, view decision notices and view associated documents.
Building work may also require an application under the Building Regulations.
To contact the Development Management Section of the Council, please refer to the phone, fax or email details under the 'Contact Us' section on this page.
