How to book
To book an appointment, please telephone the Contact Centre on 01895 250230 and an agent will take your booking. Should you wish to discuss a specific application please provide the details of the application to the agent.
For some visitors currently coming to Planning Services, your needs can be met at the main reception area, enabling you, for example, to quickly drop off planning applications with payment by cheque and collect planning application forms.
Building Control Services visitors should register at the main reception area in the Civic Centre. Reception staff will contact Building Control directly and arrange for them to be met in the Planning Information Service reception area.
This will avoid Building Control visitors unnecessarily waiting to see a Duty Planner.
