You will receive an automated acknowledgement which lists some contact phone numbers and timeframes which will help you access other enquiry services across the wider council. However for this Planning Enquiry service please refer to the advice given on this page about response timeframes and contact phone numbers. After you submit your enquiry we will acknowledge it with your reference number and then a Planning Officer will contact you.
We aim to advise of the merits of a scheme delivering more certainty by indicating likely or possible outcomes for it. The new service will allow us to understand what your priorities are and how you wish to receive our advice, to work collaboratively with you to shape your proposals and to clearly establish the options available to you with reference to the Development Plan framework.
We will agree a deliverable timeframe with you to provide the advice requested only extending it where more time is needed for valid reasons.
Please note that the Local Planning Authority cannot control response times from third party consultees but we will keep you informed about this.
