Planning policy

The Local Development Framework provides the planning framework for the consideration of planning applications within a local authority area.

The aim of development management policies is to reduce unnecessary complexity for all parties engaged in development

The Community Infrastructure Levy allows local authorities to fund infrastructure by charging on new developments, based on the size and type of developments in their area.

Building and landscape design ensures that new development meets local criteria in respect of land use, practicality (drainage, parking, access etc.) and environmental considerations.
