Code of Practice for the Publicity of Planning Applications

To promote quality, efficiency and consistency, Development Management undertook a review of its notification and publicity arrangements resulting in the production and adoption of this Code of Practice. The Code of Practice has been updated twice since its adoption in 2008 to take into account legislative and other changes and to maximise efficiency. The Code reflects best practice and is in accordance with national guidance and legislative requirements.

This February 2014 revision includes the new temporary statutory provisions for the publicity of prior approval notifications introduced by the Town and Country (General Permitted Development) (Amendment) (England) Order 2013 in respect of some householder development and changes of use. It has also been generally updated to take into account the procedural implications of the installation of a new planning application database system and the move to new offices.
