Commenting on a planning application

Planning Explorer is in the process of being upgraded by our third party supplier. As a result of this work, you will not be able comment on a planning application online. Instead, please email your comments with the application reference to We are sorry but we cannot accept comments via the post.

Coronavirus update - Publicising planning applications

We continue to publish weekly lists and press notices below and notify neighbours as usual. Due to social distancing guidance, the government has introduced temporary measures to allow us to post site notices online that would usually be displayed at the premises.

Weekly list of received planning applications

In addition to the detailed planning application information available on Planning Explorer, we also provide a weekly list of applications received. Documents are available for the last five weeks.
