Proposals for land use
Any proposals on the development of, or change in use of land have
to be approved by the local planning authority. When planning
applications are submitted the council may ask for the views of
other agencies, council departments and local people on the
proposals. The responses are considered alongside other
factors before deciding if the development is appropriate for the
site, and the wider area.
Each development is considered on its own merit in relation to
local planning policies and government guidance.
