Decisions on planning applications are made by the
Development Control Committee or by council officers under delegated powers.
The county council make decisions on:
- minerals-related developments (e.g. quarries)
- waste-related developments (e.g. recycling facilities)
- development for and by the county council (e.g. libraries, county council run schools, new major road schemes, listed buildings)
All other planning proposals and applications (including housing) are dealt with by the
local district and borough councils. If you are unsure about who is responsible for determining a particular type of planning application, please email us.
