Duty Planning Officer
We have a duty planning officer who is available for pre-booked 15min appointments on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 10am and 12.20pm. Appointments are available over a rolling 2 week period and can be booked by contacting our Customer Service Centre on 01923 226400.
The duty planner can discuss general planning issues and offer informal guidance on householder extensions and small scale changes to premises. This is without the benefit of site visits or taking into account external factors such as neighbour and interested parties views.
There is no charge for this service.
