You can search and view planning and building control applications on our general public register and on our interactive map - MapMÔN - which also provides a comprehensive range of information related to your address and its surrounding area.
Decisions on planning applications can be taken by either officers or elected councillors meeting at the Planning and Orders Committee, depending on the nature of the application.
We provide a webcast of the latest Planning and Orders Committee proceedings.
