Planning applications and Building Warrants
Planning applications and building warrants continue to be processed however both Services are currently experiencing a high volume of applications and enquiries. As a result, there is likely to be a delay in the processing of your application.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and would appreciate your support until such time as we are able to adequately address the current backlog and high work volume.
If you have lodged an application with us we ask that you minimise correspondence with your case officer and the validation officer, as far as practicable, in terms of seeking an update or requesting a timescale for determination.
Should we require further information from you, we will contact the agent or, in instances where no agent is identified, the applicant.
If you have an agent and need to contact us, we would ask that this is done through your agent as this will help minimise enquiries.
Any application that needs to be heard by the Planning Applications Committee (PAC) will still be dealt with in this way, although at the present time virtual meetings are being held for this and the Local Review Body.
