What happens when I submit my application

The planning application system follows this process:

  • When a planning application is received by the Council, we check all the details submitted are correct and the application is valid
  • If it's valid, we would contact neighbours and other interested parties, and they are given 21 days in which to comment on the planning application
  • Planning officer makes a site visit to assess the application and its impact on the surrounding area
  • We will negotiate with you or your agent if there are any issues
  • Recommendation is made of either approval, approval subject to conditions, or if approval is not possible; a refusal is made
