Duty planning officer service
The council provides a duty planning officer service. The purpose of this service is to give general planning advice about 'permitted development' and other development proposals such as extending your home or adding an outbuilding in your garden.
Please note that for enquiries about building a new house you should submit a developer pre-application enquiry.
Email your enquiry
Email your general planning query to the duty planning officer to firstname.lastname@example.org. You should receive a reply to your email within 24 hours (excluding weekends and public holidays).
