Planning Applications

Important Information

Please note that the Council is in the final phase of migrating major Council IT systems to new software. This includes a transfer of all live planning records. Consequently, delays are currently being experienced with the validation of planning applications, notifications on planning applications and appeals and issuing of decision notices. This also impacts upon publishing planning application plans, documents and correspondence on this website.
As an interim arrangement, new planning applications and updates to existing planning applications will be published outside of our main planning publisher system. Therefore please search for application details under both publishers, links below:
Main publisher

Interim publisher (new registered applications post 29 July and updates to live planning applications)

The new software and public access is scheduled to be operational by the second week of September. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.

(You will need the planning application number. If you don't have it, please use the search above first and make a note of the number) 

Publishing your personal details

Any written comments you make about an application, by law, must be placed on the public file. This means that:

  • Your comments, and your name and address will form part of the planning application documents;
  • Anonymous and 'in confidence' comments will not be considered;
  • Your comments will be published on our website including your name and address;
  • We will remove any signature, email address and telephone number before publishing; and,
  • It may be possible for your name and address to appear in search results on Google, Yahoo and other internet browsers/search engines (of which the Council has no control over)

Exception: We will consider any special circumstance of making personal details sensitive, for example, keeping confidential the address of a person who is the subject of harassment. If you feel that your comment should be kept confidential please specify in your representation.
