We deal with planning applications that relate to minerals, waste and our own County Council developments such as schools, libraries, Social Services developments and new roads.
Your local planning authority (District Council) should be able to advise you of other types of developments, including extensions, residential and business developments.
You can search for current planning applications and submit your comments online here. You can also view planning applications that have already been determined.
We advise that you use Internet Explorer when accessing the search function as there have been problems reported when users have tried to access it using Google Chrome.
Planning application details can be viewed in person at the relevant local district council office, online using the Search now button above, or by appointment at our office in County Hall.
Letting you know
If you have objected or are in support of an application, we will inform you if it is to be determined at Regulation Committee. We will write to you at least 5 working days in advance of the meeting.
If you have objected to an application, we will inform you of the outcome of the decision.
We will endeavour to determine planning applications within the Government’s set timescales, which are
- Mineral, waste and all major planning applications – 13 weeks from the date a valid application is received.
- County developments – 8 weeks from the date a valid application is received.
