How will I know when my planning application has been decided?
The applicant (or agent) will be sent a decision notice. For most types of application this will be either an approval, usually with conditions that must be complied with, or a refusal stating why the application was considered to be unacceptable.
Decisions can be viewed on our website using the public access facility. Members of public that have commented on the application and provided us with their email address will also receive an email to inform them a decision has been made, and where they can view the full details of that decision.
