Delay in processing planning applications

We are dealing with a significant increase in the number of planning applications which has resulted in delays in our validation times and the processing of the applications.

The validating of applications is taking up to four weeks and it may take up to 16 weeks to receive a decision, please factor this in when applying for permission and planning works.

All applicants will be sent an email confirming receipt of their application with five days of receipt and will be provided with the application number which can then be used to track the progress of your applications on  our website.

If the target determination date for your application is more than two weeks overdue, we will respond to your enquiry to update you on when you can expect a decision to be issued.

Thank you for your patience, and apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause.
