Planning ApplicationsPlanning Applications

Anybody proposing to alter or extend their house is encouraged to discuss whether there is a need for planning permission. Ask for pre-application advice.

We are always pleased to help and would also take the opportunity to consider whether any other consents might be required for example Building Regulations approval.

Information about when planning permission is required for domestic and commercial work is also available on the Planning Portal (external link), the government's online planning and building control resource.

In this section you can find out how to make a planning application, how to view and comment on planning applications, and where to find decision notices.
