You can view current planning application and decisions online or at our offices in the Town Hall. You'll be able to comment on current applications too.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): change to service

On advice from the government regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), all comments on any current planning application are required, wherever possible, to be submitted on our online portal

Any letters sent by post or hand delivered to one of our customer centres will still be processed but may take a little longer due to COVID-19 restrictions with less officers working within the office complex.
