We will be starting the process for shutting down our existing Planning System on 16th February because we are replacing this with a new software system called Idox Uniform. This will be more efficient and will help us process applications more quickly.

During this period:-

  • * new applications will not be logged
  • * consultations will not be sent out
  • * decisions will not be issued.

We will continue to deal with applications in the pipeline and any enforcement cases.

The online facility to view applications will still be available and the planning team will be available to answer queries etc.
The new system should be up and running on 6th March 2018. We will then clear the backlog of work as quickly as possible, restart the consultations and issue any decisions outstanding. No decisions will be made without the normal consultation process taking place.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

When a planning application is received and has been reviewed by a Planning Officer for completeness it is then “Registered” . A list is published each week of New applications and available below:

Applications being considered

Decision notices are normally issued within 3 working days of the decision being made. When an application is refused clear reasons will be given as to why it is not acceptable. The application fee paid is to process the application and is not refunded if an application is refused. The Council will be happy to discuss changes that may lead to a favourable decision on a revised application. The decision notice gives advice on how to appeal. Only the applicant has the right of appeal against a decision or conditions imposed.

Once a decision has been issued to the applicant the decision notice will be posted on the our website.
A list of decisions made is published weekly and available below:
