We will be transferring to a new computer system in 2018. We’re looking forward to using the new software system as it will improve our processes and provide a better service for you when using our website.
The Planning department will be carrying out the task of transferring to the new system from February to June 2018.
As Planning staff will be working on transferring data and setting up the new system there may be some delays to processing applications and enquiries
We hope to keep any disruptions to our normal day to day service to a minimum but wanted you to be aware in advance of possible longer processing times.
Alternatively, you can use our mapping system to find a planning application.
We also publish our weekly application and decision lists
