Development Management Contacts

Planning teamDevelopment Management is the part of the Planning and Regeneration which deals with the processing of planning applications, taking account of national and local policies and guidance together with the merits of each scheme, in order to manage development in the public interest.

Our aim is to ensure that development is allowed where it is needed, while ensuring that the character and amenity of an area are not adversely affected by new buildings or changes in the use of buildings or land.

Development Management is not about how a building or extension is constructed. There is a separate system of Building Regulations to deal with this. Our Building Control team can help you with these.

Development Management has a Service Support Team which will register all applications and enquiries. Householder enquiries regarding whether planning permission is required is now a self assessment procedure. All other enquiries should be made in writing since we have a policy that we will not advise people verbally on any matter. This ensures that the advice we give is recorded and that the customer has a written record, it also ensures that the advice can not be misinterpreted. Planning Officers have administrative support through which other enquiries should be directed, although Officers cover the whole of the Borough administrative support is divided into North & South areas.

Voice mail is only active on telephones to enable you to leave messages for officers when they are in meetings or out on site. It is understood that this maybe inconvenient, however, we do endeavour to return all calls the same day, or within 24 hours, so please leave a message.
