A temporary suspension on the registration of new planning applications has now been lifted.
Planning applications, submitted electronically only, are being accepted and registered.
However, applications will not be determined until the appropriate statutory publicity has been followed, and the site visited.
Currently no site visits or posting of site notices to advertise planning applications are being undertaken due to the Coronavirus crisis.
Current ongoing applications will, where possible, be progressed to determination subject to consultation responses having been received, and also the evolving redeployment demands of the planning team to assist with the council’s front line services.
Enforcement complaints will be progressed where they are considered by officers to be urgent (with significant health and safety implications) or matters that are able to progress in the absence of a site visit.
