Due to the current Covid restrictions, planning officers are unable to undertake site visits.
However, it is important for everybody that we keep assessing and determining planning applications.
If you are submitting a planning application, it would be extremely helpful to us if you could provide photographs and relevant contextual plans as part of your submission. This information will be requested but it would help the assessment process go faster if they are provided at the start. Photographs do not need to be made publicly available.
As always, we have a wide range of planning guidance available on our website.
For more information about how the current restrictions are affecting our service, see the Planning and Building Standards coronavirus update.
