You can also:
- View details of all planning applications electronically at the Customer Centre, or
- Make an appointment to view a paper copy of a planning document by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You should give at least two working days notice.
Please note the electronic file is the master file and the paper file in the office will only have those documents and letters sent to us in paper form, but are scanned and available on the website.
