Planning policy

Planning policy

Planning Policy is the method by which the development of land and buildings is planned for, managed and controlled. This is done through the creation of planning policies which are designed to guide future development in the district, including how much development there should be and where it should go, and to aid the determination of planning applications.

Policies continually evolve with changing administrations, lifestyles, environments and economic demands. It is the role of the Planning Policy team to develop, maintain, update and adapt policies on a local level to accommodate these changes.

More information can be found on our ‘What is Planning? Where can I find out further information?’
