Contact the planning team

Our team contains the professional planning officers. The team is here to help with planning permissions and consents, including those needed for demolitions, works to listed buildings and the display of certain outdoor advertisements.

Please contact the team:

  • Mornings We operate a duty planning officer system each morning (9am - 12.30pm) so please call us on 01543 308174 in the morning should your require any planning help, or email the development control team.
  • Afternoons Should you wish to speak to a specific officer please contact them direct after 12.30pm. Please note that, should you wish to meet a specific officer, you will need to arrange an appointment direct with them.

Planning enforcement queries

We also deal with unauthorised developments through negotiation, and will also take enforcement action if needed. So if you do something which needs planning permission without obtaining permission first, you may be forced to put things right later. Go about it in the wrong way and the result may not just be an unlawful piece of building work, but a lot of unnecessary expense and frustration.

If you have a planning enforcement query, please call either 01543 308205 or 01543 308274. Alternatively, email us about planning enforcement.

Validation of a planning application queries

If you have a question about the validation of a planning application, please call either 01543 308179 or 01543 308273.
