Planning and Conservation

PLANNING: Limited home and business visits are being made and only when urgent due to the need to control the spread of COVID-19. At present we are still making visits for Planning and Building Control purposes, but we will be contacting you before we visit.

24 HOUR OPENING:  From 2 December to the end of January, shop opening times on Mondays to Saturdays are being relaxed to enable shops to remain open longer.  No permission is required but we ask businesses to be mindful and considerate if there are local residents who may be affected by the extended opening.  If the extended hours of operation do give rise to complaint, then we will work with the businesses to see if there is a way of mitigating this.
