Planning and building control
Updates on our service due to Coronavirus
Planning duty officer: The planning duty officer will not be available from Wednesday 18 March. We are looking to offer an alternative service and will let you know as soon as we have further details.
Building control: We intend to provide a site inspection service during the current crisis. However in order to minimise the risk of transmitting/catching the virus we will be taking sensible precautions when on site and where possible only doing 'outdoor' inspections. We will continue to inspect excavations, drains and structural elements.
Please call us on 01799 510453 or 01799 510538 to request visits.
We will not be doing completion inspections inside occupied dwellings until the situation changes (unless critical for conveyancing).
Homebase appeal hearing: The planning appeal into the Homebase Saffron Walden application (UTT/19/0125/FUL) which was due to start on 17 March has been postponed.
The Planning Inspectorate have notified us that the four-day appeal will not be going ahead just yet due to concerns over the coronavirus situation. We will be notifying all interested parties about the revised dates once these have been confirmed by the Planning Inspectorate.
