Planning (Development Management Service): Changes to planning service as a result of Covid-19

Covid-19 has had an impact on the way the National Park Authority it able to conduct its business.

The Authority’s Development Management service has continued to operate as far as practicable during the Coronavirus restrictions.

Our website is operating as normal with access to Development Management Committee agendas, papers and minutes as well as normal public access to the detail on planning applications.

As of 1 September 2020 and until further notice we will no longer be able to offer planning advice over the phone or via email and our planning surgery is suspended. This is to enable officers to clear the backlog of planning applications and pre-applications that has built up as a result of Covid-19 and IT issues.

Development Management Committee meetings will be held virtually and can be viewed via a live video stream with details of how to watch on via the Committee Papers page.

Staff do not have access to the offices at present. As a result site notices will be used as the main form of publicity during this period for all applications rather than direct letters to neighbouring properties. You can also view the weekly lists of applications that have been registered and determined online.

We hope that you understand that these changes have been brought about by the unprecedented times that we are currently facing.

Your patience and understanding at this time is much appreciated.
