Planning Applications

Development Management

The responsibility for processing applications for planning permission and appeals following refusal of planning permission lies with our Development Management section.

The remit of our Development Management section includes considering proposals, visiting sites, consulting other agencies, policy, government guidance and the Planning Acts, preparing reports and recommendations often under delegated power, preparing evidence for appeals and giving evidence at inquiries.
