How do I comment on planning applications?
You can view details of applications being considered by the council on our planning website.
Certain pieces of minor work can be completed without the need for planning permission. This can include developments by homeowners on domestic properties or by businesses on land for commercial use.
We encourage applicants and agents to obtain pre-application advice before submitting a formal planning application.

What we do
The Council has published Part 1 of its Brownfield Land Register which provides up-to-date and consistent information on brownfield sites that the Council considers as being appropriate for residential development.
The Council has signed up to a Government backed initiative, this being the Planning Quality Framework. This framework requires the Local Planning Authority to make a commitment to ensure we are delivering a quality, value for money service and ensuring that we are delivering what our customers want. The Council will contact our Planning customers asking your opinion about our service. Within the survey you will have the option to opt out of that survey and any future surveys.
