Coronavirus advice - planning and building control

Planning Committees are currently being held fortnightly and will be virtual meetings. Members of the public and interested parties are welcome to address the virtual committee. Instructions on how to access the meeting as part of the audience are published with the agenda. For agendas and further information, keep checking the council’s committee web pages.

Planning and Building Control Services are still operating but with some temporary measures introduced. For example:

  • planning officers will not be able to undertake site visits which require face-to-face contact or entering a property until further notice, although photographs may be acceptable
  • planning enforcement inspections will be considered on a case-by-case basis
  • planning applications should be submitted online via the Planning Portal

Officers are contactable over e-mail or by phone. Officers can also arrange and participate in conference calls using Microsoft Teams and Skype.

For further information please see our additional information page.
