Planning applications – changes to neighbour notification

Due to Coronavirus, the Council has changed the way we publicise planning applications in order to reduce the time our employees need to be in the office but still ensuring the public are aware of proposals near them.  We are no longer notifying neighbours by letter about development proposals.  Instead, every application is being publicised by way of at least one site notice.  In addition, to ensure neighbours know about proposals next to them, we are requiring applicants to notify their adjoining neighbours (those who their property shares a boundary with - side and rear neighbours) and also if the proposal involves development to the front or side which is visible from the front, neighbours opposite the site.  Applicants are required to submit written confirmation that they have notified their neighbours of their proposed development as a validation requirement.

We would encourage you to make any comments about planning applications using electronic methods either by email to or using the comment facility on the website.

You can still keep up to date with planning applications submitted by checking the weekly list:
