Planning and built environment
Many types of building works, changes of use and works to protected trees need planning approval.
The information within this section will help you find out if planning permission is needed; apply for planning permission; see and comment on planning applications; and find out how we make our decision on the outcome of an application:
- search for planning applications, decisions and appeals
- comment on a planning application
- find out if I need planning permission
- pre-planning application advice

A breach of planning regulations occurs where a development is undertaken without first obtaining the necessary approvals. The information within this section will help you find out how to report a suspected breach of planning regulations to us; understand how we investigate such reports and establish what action is available to us where a breach has occurred.
Our vision and strategy for managing the way land and buildings are used across the borough is set out in our planning policies and supporting documentation. The information within this section will allow you to find out about our Local Development Framework, understand what supporting documentation we use when making our planning decisions and how we consult you.
