Our Development Control planners work with the public, architects and developers to make sure any planning applications fit in with our policies.

Last year we received more than 900 planning applications, of which 93 per cent were approved either under delegated powers - see Scheme of Delegation (PDF) - or by the Development Control Committee.

How can I find out what was decided?

You can use the Planning Application Search to find out details, whether permission was granted, and any conditions on a planning permission or reasons for refusal. There is a link on progress on the results page.

What about recent decisions?

These can be viewed on the Weekly List of Planning Applications, by selecting the 'applications determined' link.
