Planning and Building Control

Residents can help shape the development and growth of their local area through the production of a Neighbourhood Development Plan, neighbourhood Development Order or Community Right to Build Order.
Our Building Conservation Officer is involved in a wide range of activities relating to planning, including the re-use of buildings at risk, development control and planning and policy advice.
The Self-Build and Custom Housebuild Act 2015 placed a duty on local Councils across England to keep and have regard to a register of people who are interested in self-build or custom build projects within the areas. The register will help inform the Council of the demand for self-build and custom build plots in East Lindsey and enable the Council to develop a strategy for matching people to plots.
The Government has set out plans to introduce a statutory Brownfield Land Register which all Councils must have published by 31st December 2017. The Brownfield Land Register will comprise a standard set of information on brownfield sites suitable for housing.
