Once we receive a valid planning application we will:

  • Email or write to you to confirm that the applicaiton has been validated.
  • Consult neighbouring properties and statutory consultees.
  • Publicise the planning application either with a site notice or a press notice - This does not apply to all applications.
  • Assess the application.
  • Make a decision (8 weeks from validation date for minor applications and 13 weeks from validation date for major applications) – not all applications go to planning committee.
  • If we require an extension of time to determine the application, this will be requested in writing/email within the original timeframe for the application e.g. 6, 8, 13 or 16 weeks.
