It’s business as usual for residents using our Planning and Building  Control services as officers continue to carry out key functions even though they are working from home.

Planning applications are still being processed in a timely manner and  the Building Control Team also continues to provide site inspections at key stages of building projects, subject to current Government advice and guidance.

Cllr Adam Kent, whose Portfolio covers Planning, said: “We appreciate that many building projects are continuing across the District under the new social distancing guidelines. 

Our officers are working remotely and respond to telephone and e-mail correspondence immediately, indeed virtual post and email reaches us quicker than paper post.

It is important that we consider immediate and future requirements, we are receiving and welcome planning applications, so please continue to submit them.”

Please visit or for contact details or call the teams direct on  01527 881770 for Planning and 01527 881402 for Building Control.
