When we receive your application, we will make sure it has been properly completed and we have all the details we need. Once accepted, it is registered.
An acknowledgement letter will then be sent to you, or your agent if you are employing one, advising you of the date by when you can expect a decision. We will ask you to put up a notice on the application site to assist in publicising your proposal for public comment. We will also write to neighbours who might be affected by the proposal and ask for their comments.
The planning officer assigned to deal with your application will visit the site to carry out an appraisal of the proposal and will make a recommendation.
