Planning site visits: Householder applications

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we are unable to undertake physical site visits for most planning applications.

Therefore, to assist with a virtual site visit, applicants are requested to provide photos for householder planning applications. Depending on the location of the proposed works, it is recommended that the following photos be submitted with householder applications for planning permission.

More information on what photos we require.

Make a comment

The Council is required to consider all representation that refer to relevant planning consideration made on a planning application and these are published on our website. We redact phone numbers, names, addresses, e-mail ad​dresses and signatures together with personal data that can identify you or a third party. Your letter or e-mail will be scanned, redacted and will be available to be viewed by other people. The Council reserves the right to redact some or all of the comments, particularly if they are of an inflammatory, derogatory or libellous nature or contain third party personal data. To ensure your representation is valid you should include, the planning reference number, your name, your full postal address and your comments. Unfortunately the Council cannot enter into dialogue regarding individual cases and as such your comments must be self contained, and any questions that are raised in your response will be treated as being rhetorical. For a comment to be considered valid, it should refer to appropriate planning considerations.

Comments submitted will be made available online to the public.
