No new planning applications will be determined for the immediate future.
We will however, still be receiving applications electronically and we will make them available online in the usual way.
However, we will not be starting the formal public consultation period until Government guidance on non-essential movement changes and we can safely put up site notices and undertake site visits.
Planning applications that are already in the system and have been subject to public consultation, will continue to determined.

Government Covid-19 guidance: Stay home and stay safe
Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently (video tips).
It is recommended that you maintain at least a two metre gap (about 6.5ft) from people who are not from your household.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service that can tell if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
If you live alone stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
– a high temperature
– a new continuous cough
If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.
This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
The Government has decided that the NHS will not be testing people who are self-isolating with mild symptoms.
