We have received the following from our councillors:
The Planning Department will not be registering or issuing decisions on any current applications until further notice.
If an exceptional or emergency issue does arise, the department still has the resources to process an application, if necessary authority is given to do so.
Officers will continue to progress the 500 current applications which are in the system, as best as possible.
We will update you once this situation changes, but in the meantime please keep safe and well.
