In response to the 16 week planning guarantee introduced on 6th December 2023, and the ongoing 26 week planning guarantee, when dealing with planning applications, reserved matters applications and permissions in principle, the submission of amended plans or additional information will not be accepted by the Borough Council  without an agreed extension of time first being in place.  This is in order to allow sufficient time for the consideration and possible re-consultation of the amended proposals.

Without an agreed extension of time, the Council will determine the application as submitted at the time of validation, within the statutory time period where possible.  You will be advised if determination of the submitted application is likely to go beyond the statutory time period with an explanation of the reason why, e.g. committee dates.
