Mineral or waste applications

Planning applications for minerals or waste related developments should be submitted to us.

We encourage you to discuss your proposals informally with us before you submit an application. Please contact us and we can advise you about which forms we will need, give you a view on whether your development is likely to be acceptable in planning terms, and help to identify any issues that you may need to address in your application.

Visit the Planning Portal. for more advice on submitting a planning application.
