Our planning service is divided into three areas:
Planning is a service that considers applications for a variety of development proposals. Included are house extensions, changes of use of land and buildings, major housing and employment schemes, works to listed buildings, planning appeals and enforcement.
Building regulations is a separate service that deals with details of building construction and the health and safety aspects of new buildings, extensions and alterations. It ensures that new building work is carried out in accordance with the building regulations and investigates reports of dangerous buildings.
Planning policy is another service that is used to help determine planning applications - what can be built, where, and how buildings are used. It is also used to plan for our future needs, assessing what change is likely to happen and where, and what policies are needed to achieve this.
