Following the latest Government guidance our planning team are  now working from home. We aim to continue to provide our usual high quality of service..

We would ask that you do not call into the Civic Centre in Dartford as it is now closed to the public.

You are advised to use the Planning Portal to submit your applications, as any hard copies received into the Council Offices will not be collected daily, and will cause delays to your submission.

Please use Public Access (link above) to view planning applications or submit your comments on planning applications, as any hard copies sent may not be able to be dealt with immediately.

Please remember to add your email address and mobile number to any correspondence so that we can communicate with you more efficiently and avoid the need to send out information in the post.

If there needs to be a delay in the determination of applications, for instance because a site visit cannot be completed, we will notify applicants via their agent where appropriate.

Coronavirus - operating as a hot food takeaway

To support communities through the Coronavirus outbreak the government is introducing legislation to allow the temporary change of use of a pub, restaurant or cafe to a hot-food take away without planning permission for a period of 12 months from when the legislation comes into force.

Those venues offering takeaway or delivery services must not include alcoholic beverages if their licence does not already permit it.

Businesses are required to tell us, as the local planning authority, when the new use begins and ends.

To notify us of your change of use, or for any further information or advice, please  contact Planning Admin team.
