Planning fees increase
The Government introduced new regulations which saw an increase in planning application fees to all local authorities from 17 January 2018. More information is available on our 'apply for permission' pages.
Note: We currently have a backlog of applications and are approximately 8 working days behind.
Effective 12 February, Planning Administration will take calls for duty planning between 0900-1200 Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. In most cases they will be able to assist but if not they will refer the call to a Planning Officer for a call back. Please note that during really busy periods there may be some delays.
