Planning advice surgeries at Easingwold and Stokesley are suspended along with face-to-face meetings with the Planning Duty Officer at the Civic Centre in Northallerton.
Case officers will not be undertaking planning related site visits or displaying site notices as a matter of course. A risk based approach is in operation and site visits will be undertaken by managers when a site visit can be undertaken and site notice can be fixed safely, having regard to social distancing guidelines in order to ensure the safety of our customers and staff.
A fortnightly newsletter will be sent out electronically to our planning agents with our latest advice and setting out our current position.
Alleged breaches of planning control site visits will be undertaken where it is considered that the allegation may constitute ‘immediate and irreparable harm to the districts best assets within the natural or built environment, or public safety’ in accordance with the priority procedure set out in the Council’s Local Enforcement Plan and where it is safe for our customers and our staff to do so.
These restrictions will limit our ability to deliver non-statutory services including pre-application enquiries, and may impact on our ability to respond to residential development enquiries and other ‘do I need planning permission?’ enquires.
Please use the relevant planning pages and associated links on our website where possible:
With regard to Local Searches, we are presently able to offer a remote personal search service. Please email [email protected] attaching a site location plan and we will endeavour to send you the results electronically.
We are able to carry out Land Charge enquiries remotely and planning history from 1974 is available online. Land Charges and Local Search phone enquires can be made between 9am and 12pm by calling 01609 767009.
