Document Scanning and Viewing

We are carrying out planned system maintenance from 2pm Friday 29 September until 5pm Monday 2 October. We will have limited ability to answer all enquiries in full and will be unable to scan documents at our council office during this period.

Public Access will still be available to view Planning documents, however not all documents will be visible until the maintenance is complete.

Planning applications can be submitted via the Planning Portal. Please ensure that all the correct forms and information are included, in compliance with our local validation lists, or your application may be delayed. 

Our Planning Service (Development Management) is regularly experiencing extremely high demand. If you are struggling to get through to this line please email with the reference number of your application and/or a summary of your query in the subject line. Your query will be redirected for a staff member to deal with at the earliest opportunity.

If your query relates to a planning matter and where the information you are looking for is available on our Public Access system or on another online platform, we strongly encourage you to use these resources.  

For all other unavoidable officer contact we suggest you use email. If you do not know the planning officer’s contact details, please email and we will forward your request to the relevant officer.
