At this time we are doing all we can to continue to deliver the Planning Service and I would like to assure you that the team remain committed to providing the best possible service in the circumstances.

The receipt and validation of planning applications will be smoother if you use the Planning Portal for submission electronically rather than sending paper copies, as this might take longer to handle dependent upon the resources available at our offices. Whilst there will inevitably be some disruption of the service we will endeavour to keep this to a minimum.

Thank you,

Mike Gildersleeves, Assistant Director - Planning & Strategic Infrastructure
