Development Management

The Council's Development Management service decides applications for planning permission, listed building consent, conservation area consent, advertisement consent and works to protected trees. It gives pre application advice on development proposals (by email).  It can take action where development is carried out without or not in accordance with permission.

It holds public information on applications which have been submitted, facilitates commenting on applications and provides general information on development management matters. 

You can view valid planning applications and associated documents, including a Planning decision online.


All Planning staff are partly working remotely but are able to process planning applications as normal. Should you require a meeting with an officer please arrange this by email or phone prior to visiting the offices at Dundee House. 

If you have a current planning application please contact the case officer by email whenever possible.
