Planning applications

You can still submit an application, but it may take longer than usual to process.  We request that all planning application submissions are made electronically via the Planning Portal.  Please contact us if you have any difficulty with this so we can help to find a solution.

To help us consider your application, please include recent, date stamped photographs showing the application site and surrounding properties with your submission. 

We may also ask you to assist us by displaying a site notice at your property.  If this is necessary we will contact you to ask you to do so once your application has been submitted.

If you would like to comment on a planning application, please use the planning applications search service by selecting 'Submit comments' at the top of the page showing details of the application upon which you wish to comment, or send an email to

If you are only able to submit comments to us through the post, please make sure you allow sufficient time for your correspondence to be received and processed before the expiry of the consultation period set out in the letter you received from us.
