Planning

The Development Management Team is committed to delivering a professional, timely and customer driven service and to do that this year's Feedback Questionnaire is designed to address all aspects of our responsibilities. I would be very grateful if you could find the time to complete our annual customer satisfaction questionnaire since I am keen to know how we can improve the function, so that it might better live up to your expectations.

Thank you for taking the trouble to reply,

Paul Edwards, Head of Planning.

We offer a number of online services
We deal with most types of planning applications, from validation to decision. However, a small number are dealt with by Lincolnshire County Council, including mining and waste applications and those which relate to schools.
The Scheme of Delegation sets out who has the responsibility for deciding your planning application. This applies to planning applications such as Listed Building Consent, Advertisement consent and some other types of application.
Here are details of the planning applications we've publicised in local newspapers.
The public are welcome to sit and watch the Planning Committee, however they must not speak or disrupt the meeting.
You can get advice from a planning officer if you are thinking of making a planning application. This lets you find out whether we are likely to support your application, before you submit it.
We charge a fee for dealing with most types of planning applications.
A conditional approval requires certain things to be carried out in order for the development to be lawful.
There are certain things that you can do to your house that do not require planning permission. This can include building extensions, putting up a shed, putting up a fence or building a wall. However there are many rules that control this.
We are always working towards getting higher standards of design for new development in the District. This is supported by national, regional and local policy.
For most planning applications a yellow site notice will be put up.
We investigate all breaches of planning control where development has taken place before the necessary planning approval has been granted.
