We make sure that all building work in Bournemouth complies with our Planning policies. When you plan to do any work to your property, you may need to apply for planning permission or building regulation approval. We also make current planning applications public to allow residents to see what work is taking place.
Planning permission has a cost so we recommend that you check if you need it before applying. Complete a pre-application to check.
Building Control makes sure buildings are safe, assessable and energy efficient. New builds need approval from Building Regulations.
When you apply for planning permission, we check that it fits in with our policies. We also advertise your documents to the public.
We protect Bournemouth’s heritage and natural beauty by using conservation areas, tree preservation orders and Listed buildings.
You can view current planning applications and decisions online or at our offices in the Town Hall. You’ll be able to comment on current appliactions too.
