The Core Strategy and Development Management Policies DPD was adopted by the Authority on 9 December 2010, and details of the new Core Strategy policies can be found on the Core Strategy page.
The Authority's Online Planning Service enables you to inspect current planning applications, including the application forms and drawings submitted by the applicant and then comment on the applications online. Any comments received can be viewed by inspecting the application file held at the Authority’s headquarters.
Please note that in the event of an appeal against a householder application that proceeds by way of the expedited procedure, any representations made about the application will be passed to the Secretary of State and there will be no opportunity to make further representations.
To find the application that you wish to comment on you can search either by location (property name or address), by the application number, if known, or by browsing weekly lists of submitted applications.
Some historic planning applications, prefixed with NFDC, are now available to view on the website. You will require the 5 digit planning application number and applications currently available are in the number range 00004 – 30944. Any applications which have different prefixes are not currently available to view via our website but can be viewed at our offices.
