Planning and Building Control performance

Development Management Customer Charter

A Development Management Customer Charter has been published which sets out the services available and standards expected in relation to planning applications and enforcement. The Charter sets out the standards we want to be able to achieve, and the programme provides the mechanism to ensure the resources, processes and prioritisation is in place to meet those standards. The Charter is a living document and so will itself be informed by that work looking at those resources, processes and prioritisation.
