Planning and built environment


Revised draft Statement of Community Involvement – give us your views about the proposed changes to how we consult on planning applications and planning policy.

Planning enforcement

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.

Planning policy

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.
