Essential maintenance

We will be carrying out essential maintenance on our Search for planning applications system from 12.00pm to 2.00pm on Saturday 28 May 2022.

During this time you will be unable to search for or view online planning applications.

Thank you for your patience while this work is completed.

Applying for planning permission

Due to the high volume of applications received there is a delay to the processing and determination of applications.

It may take up to 12 weeks to determine your application rather than the usual 8 due to the current circumstances.

We will endeavour to determine your application as soon as possible. We advise to factor in the potential for delays before planning any works.
