The Development Management Service, responsible for assessing and determining planning applications, will be unavailable to the public from Monday 26 February to Monday 4 March 2024. During this time, we will be making improvements and processing applications.
You can still contact us via email at email@example.com or use our Live Chat for general enquiries.
Regular service will resume on Monday 4 March 2024. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
This section provides advice and guidance from our planning service, including heritage and design. If you have a home improvement project in mind, there is guidance available on whether or not you need planning permission.
The planning service is currently undergoing a planning service improvement programme.
Do you need planning permission?
Find out if common projects need planning permission, and use interactive guides for projects, such as extensions.
