What Can You Expect from the Planning Team?
The purpose of the Planning Team
Most new buildings, major alterations to existing buildings, as well as changes in the uses of land and buildings need planning permission from the District Council. Our job is to provide the right balance between encouraging development which provides homes, jobs, services for the community and protecting the character of our towns, villages and countryside. Whilst achieving this, we aim to ensure that local people also have a say in what happens around them.
These pages are designed to enable you to access information and advice on planning issues that may affect you, including guidance on whether you need planning permission, how to make an application, viewing or commenting on an application and concerns you may have regarding a breach of planning control.
For enquiries regarding any of the services offered by the Planning team please contact our help desk at email@example.com or on 01252 774419.
