A Duty Planning Officer is available in our Customer Centre.

You do not need to book an appointment to see them. They are available:

  • Monday to Friday

The Duty Planning Officer can:

  • assist with the interpretation of plans and drawings submitted with an application
  • assist with basic procedural and technical enquires (for example how a decision is made or how to object and comment)

The Duty Planning Officer cannot:

  • give an opinion regarding the acceptability of pre-application enquiries - you will be need to write in with queries of this nature
  • advise whether planning permission is required for a proposal - you will need to complete a householder enquiry form
  • advise whether an amendment to an existing permission can be carried out without a further application - you will need to speak with the relevant case officer
  • advise whether an amendment is likely to be acceptable - you will need to speak with the relevant case officer
