Planning decisions

We aim to make decisions on valid local planning applications within two months.

Process for decisions

We approve (sometimes with conditions) or refuse applications after we've:

  • visited the site
  • considered comments
  • consulted

A planning officer usually makes a decision on your application but in some cases it may be up to a council committee. This process is set by a Scheme of Delegation:

Decision notices

We notify you (or your agent) of our decision. Other interested parties can:

Search applications and view decisions

Appeals and reviews

You have a right to challenge a decision in certain circumstances. However, there is no right of appeal against planning decisions for objectors.
