When we decide individual planning applications, we assess them against our local planning policies.
Following national policy rules, we must set out how we want the district to develop over the long-term.
Our Planning Policy Team is responsible for producing our plans - setting out where we will allow new homes to be built and businesses to be established.
There are no current consultations.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current Coronavirus situation, the best method by which to contact the Planning Policy team at present is email.
