Planning permission is the formal permission from us for the development of land, property or any other building project.
Some projects may not require planning permission, but be aware that if you begin a project without legally obtaining planning permission and it turns out you DO need it this could result in enforcement action being taken, and you could end up with a fine and /or a criminal conviction.
We may use third party providers to assess planning applications, who will have access to the planning file. The determination of planning applications will, however, always remain with the local planning authority.
Service update - March 27, 2021
We are currently experiencing a high volume of planning applications and it is taking longer than usual to deal with day to day enquiries.
Officers will endeavour to work to the agreed timelines on planning applications and will deal with complaints in accordance with the prioritisation approach in our Planning Enforcement Policy.
However, we will appreciate your help and understanding during this period.
