Where to get planning permission

We are responsible for dealing with applications which relate to:

  • Mineral development e.g. quarrying
  • Waste developments e.g. landfill sites
  • Council's own developments

Search planning applications for mineral, waste and county council developments

We don't deal with applications for:

  • householders e.g. extensions
  • residential e.g. housing estates
  • commercial e.g. offices or shops

Contact your district council (local planning authority).

Your district council may also be able to advise you of other types of developments including conversions, and business developments.

For planning queries or if you're unsure about applying, please contact the council’s planning team to get a definitive answer:
