Contacting Development Management

All planning correspondence can be sent by email.

If you have a query regarding a current planning application and don’t have access to email, you can contact the case officer by telephoning the Council Offices and using the extension number included in application correspondence.

If required, you can also contact Development Management by telephone regarding validation correspondence, payments or invoices, having received a neighbour notification, property naming, enforcement, application search or submission, or any other technical queries.

If you require pre-application advice, enquiries should be submitted in writing. Advice cannot be provided verbally. Full details on how to submit pre-application advice enquiries are included in the ‘Pre-application Advice’ link by clicking on the ‘More pages in this section’ menu at the top of the page.
