What happens after I've applied
Receipt of Application
On receipt of a planning application, it is first checked to determine whether it's complete (valid). Full details of what to provide are given on our Make an Application page. If the application is not complete, you will be sent a letter with details of the outstanding information.
When the application has been checked and made valid, a letter is sent advising the Planning Officer who will deal with the application and the date a decision will be made by. All valid applications form part of our searchable planning database, where its progress can be tracked and commented on.
