Planning, land and property

Improvements to the planning service.

Work starts in early November 2016 to modernise and improve our Planning service by transferring records into digital format and updating our computer systems.

This will result in a more efficient service and help people to access to our information more easily.

The process will take several months and normal service may sometimes be delayed or disrupted. Every effort will be made to keep any disruption to a minimum and updates will be published here as work progresses. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please email with any queries.
