Delays in dealing with applications

Please note that due to high caseloads and staff shortages within the planning team, planning applications may take longer to deal with than normal. We are in the process of filling the vacancies and reducing the workload but in the meantime applicants are likely to face a delay in the processing and determining of their application.
