Planning Service operations during Covid-19
- Officers have been asked to minimise face to face meetings and will be using alternatives including conference calls and skype meetings.
- Non-essential site visits will stop. Essential site visits will need to continue and officers have been advised to minimise contact with people on site.
- Due to fluctuating resources/working from home we will suspend the phone service for the time being for incoming calls and encourage you to contact us by email - it's not possible to leave voice messages for individual officers at this time
- Decision making at Planning Committee will continue as programmed, and we are working out how we can continue to hold the Committee meetings in a way that is safe and efficient

Planning peer challenges review
In March 2016, we had a full review of our Planning Authority. The review was organised by the Local Government Association and the Planning Advisory Service. It was carried out by trained officers and councillors from other councils.
