How Planning WorksA development team approach to all building proposals in Kennet. How to apply for planning permission and building regs approval.

  • Sketch out some ideas of the building works you want to do.
  • Discuss these with a builder to make sure they are feasible.
  • Fill in the “Do I need to make a planning application?” form and send the information to us.
  • We aim to give you a free written reply within 10 working days.
  • Some building works or changes of use do not require planning permission.
  • We cannot give verbal advice because every case is different.

Planning Services CharterThe purpose of the charter is to set out clearly what the planning service provides and the standards that users of the service can expect to receive.

  • Reply to all written communication, including emails and faxes, within 10 working days
  • Deal with all telephone calls within 24 hours
  • Notify occupiers of premises most likely to be affected by an application by letter
  • Right to speak at the Regulatory Committee
  • Send details of the final decision made, including details of any conditions or reasons for refusal.
