**In light of current circumstances, we are now working on planning applications and enquiries remotely, with all of our planning staff required to work from home. This has significantly reduced the risks in relation to Covid-19; however, it remains necessary for our support officers to visit the office to deal with applications, cheques and correspondence submitted by post.
We would like to reduce the risks as much as we can and would therefore ask that you make planning submissions online using the planning portal https://www.planningportal.co.uk/info/200127/planning or by email using the electronic application forms on our website to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please can you email any correspondence, or any other documentation to email@example.com so that these can be accessed remotely.
Payment for planning applications can be made by card over the phone by calling 01705 705101, by online bank transfer or via the planning portal if you have submitted you application this way.***
