About the planning system

Planning control is the process of managing the development of land and buildings. The purposes of this process are to save what is best of our heritage and improve the infrastructure upon which we depend for a civilised existence.

Your local planning authority is responsible for deciding whether a development - anything from an extension on a house to a new shopping centre - should go ahead.

The information here (much of which is courtesy of the Planning Portal) outlines how the planning system works in England and how you can have a say on decisions which will shape your community.
