Building Control

We are working hard to review and adapt our processes as we transition into a new way of working brought about by the circumstances surrounding the current Coronavirus outbreak. These relate to our delegated powers regarding planning decisions and associated arrangements for Planning Committees. We are not yet in a position to provide you with a definitive illustration of these arrangements but are working hard to arrive at that point.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times. Please note we are currently unable to process cheques as a form of payment for applications for the foreseeable future.
