How to apply
Application evaluation process
You may need planning consent before we grant a licence. Please contact the council's planning department. Applications must meet the council's specification criteria which is site specific, and minimum heights and extents apply. Please contact us to establish the requirements.
Will Tacit Consent apply?
No. It is in the public interest that the council must process your application before it can be granted. If you have not heard from us within a reasonable period, please contact us.
If you feel your application has been unreasonably withheld or if there is a disagreement about conditions attached to your application, please contact us in the first instance. An appointed arbitrator will adjudicate any issues.
