Planning Officers

Planning Officers are responsible for dealing with Planning Applications.

Information in relation to the submission and determination of planning applications

Information on current undetermined applications and how to comment

It is often best to seek confirmation of whether or not something needs planning approval or pre-application advice in writing. This makes it easier to refer to in future and may avoid any misunderstandings. However, we do operate a 'Duty planner' service to deal with straightforward queries on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9am to 3pm. During these hours, a Planning Officer will be available to answer simple queries, and can be contacted online (via Teams - by prior arrangement), by phone (+44 1624 685950) or at the Murray House counter (please note we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide a meeting room).
