Planning consultations and documents

We apologise for the inconvenience caused with problems you have experienced in viewing planning documents to online. We have been working with our supplier and system changes have been implemented to improve the situation.

As a result of these problems any planning applications consulted on between 25 January and 10 February 2017 have been allocated an extra 10 days for comments to be made.

We are still experiencing some issues as a result of the migrated data and would be grateful if you come across any examples where you are unable to view or download documents you advise us by email to giving details of the planning application number.

Many thanks for your continued patience.

  • creation or change of use of a commercial development, where the floorspace exceeds 1,000 square metres or where the site area is 1.0 hectares or more in size
