Understanding the planning application process

After you have sent in your planning application it will go through the following steps;

  • Receipt- where we download your online application, or receive your paper form
  • Validation- where we check what we have received
  • Registration- where we consult others and produce a site notice
  • Consideration- where our planning officers carry out detailed work to assess the application, and make a decision
  • Decision- where you receive notification of the decision
