Q. Can I view plans for an application?
A. Yes all current applications are available for inspection by the public. These are available online via our Planning Searches service, and in the Priory Road offices.
Q. Can I see details of any objections that have been raised?
A. The copy of the application which the planning officer works on holds more technical information including consultations, objection letters. Whilst every effort is made to ensure that these are available for inspection it is not always possible to guarantee their availability as the officer could be working on the file. However, these should be available online.
Q. Can I have copies of plans and applications?
A. Generally yes, but there is a nominal charge for photocopying documents. All the documents in a current, undecided application can be copied however, once a decision has been made we cannot copy architects drawings or plans without their written permission.
Q. Can I view an application at any other location?
