Requests for a check as to whether planning permission and/or listed building consent is required.

There is a charge of £40 inclusive of VAT that needs to be paid in advance. A written response will be sent with 10 working days. This is a desk-based exercise and as such these enquiries should be submitted in writing with as much detail as possible to enable the Local Planning Authority to establish if planning permission/listed building consent are required.

Confirmation of closure of enforcement case

If the Council has investigated, found a breach of planning control at your property and determined that no further action will be taken, you will be verbally advised of the outcome. However, if you require a letter of comfort confirming the Council’s decision on the matter, this can be provided once the payment of £50 (including VAT) has been received. The fee needs to be paid in advance and the Council will provide a written response within 10 working days.

Confirmation of compliance with any formal enforcement action

There is a charge of £50 (including VAT) for those who seek written confirmation as to whether any formal enforcement action has been complied with. The fee needs to be paid in advance and the Council will respond within 10 working days.

Confirmation of compliance with listed building consent

There is a charge of £90 (including VAT) for those who seek confirmation of compliance with Listed Building Consents. The fee needs to be paid in advance and the Council will respond within 10 working days.

Confirmation of discharge of planning conditions.

There is a charge of £90 (including VAT) for the first condition on each Notice of Decision and £30 (including VAT) for any additional conditions on that notice of Decision requested at the same time. This is for those who require confirmation as to whether the Planning Conditions have been discharged on any single decision notice. When making the request the relevant decision notice reference number and condition numbers will need to be provided.

This will involve a desktop assessment of the files and will not confirm whether the conditions, if discharge, have subsequently been complied with (see further service below).

The fee needs to be paid in advance and the Council will respond within 10 working days.

Note: This service is different from the formal process of applying to discharge a planning condition.
