Plan checking service

We have found that more than 50% of planning applications submitted to the Authority are incomplete when they are first sent in. This results in delays in dealing with these applications. Our Planning Technician Team offers a service to speed up the registration of applications. It gives applicants’ peace of mind that all the required information has been submitted to enable the application to be dealt with speedily. The Plan Checking Service provides an opportunity for applicants to have their planning documents checked before submitting the application.

The service will give you a ‘same day’ response on whether you have:

  • completed all of the forms
  • provided the right plans
  • have all of the supporting information necessary to submit an application which can be registered without delay
