Important Notice
The Planning Administration team is currently dealing with a significant number of applications and, as a result, there is a current delay in validation of approximately 4 weeks.
The Council needs to dedicate its time to dealing with the backlog. Whilst contact with the office during this period of delay is likely to increase as applicant/agents want to know what progress is being made with their application, we ask that customers keep contact to a minimum to enable officers to focus on reducing the backlog. Thank you for your understanding.
Additional resources have been put into place to assist in addressing this backlog. It will however take some time to reduce the backlog
Central Government identify that applications should be dealt with within 8 weeks for minor applications, and 13 weeks for major applications from the date an application is validated (unless we agree an extension of time to determine the application with the applicant/agent) Due to the backlog in validation/registration, the planning case officers are receiving planning applications late, which is delaying decision making. Target dates stated on letters received by applicants/agents may not be achieved.
All consultations with third parties and statutory bodies will continue to run for the full period (normally 21 days), so statutory consultation rights remain unaffected.
