Planning Development Control
Most day-to-day planning applications, including building new homes or offices and house extensions, are decided by borough and district councils (see below).
We are responsible for making decisions about minerals extraction, waste management and developments such as schools, libraries and roads.
- Planning applications and enforcement
- Form - Planning control, report a breach
- The County Council can take action over some types of work where permission has not been granted or has been breached.
Transport Development Control
As the county highway authority, Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) consult us on planning applications where there is a road or transport element.
