Our small team has been working remotely throughout the pandemic and providing a full range of planning services. Over recent months the capacity of the team has been very significantly reduced by caring responsibilities as a result of schools being closed and for various medical reasons unrelated to the pandemic. We are suspending discretionary services in order to safeguard the core statutory decision making function.
We will re-introduce services as soon as we are able.
Thank you for being understanding, we appreciate that you may be disappointed, this is not the planning service that we want to provide and we look forward to being able to provide a full service once again shortly.
