Planning Advisory Notes

Planning advisory notes can be used as guidance when making a planning application. The notes were previously adopted as supplementary planning guidance alongside the now superseded Local Plan to 2001. They can no longer be supplementary planning guidance as they have not been subjected to formal Local Plan public consultation, though they contain some information that is still useful and relevant to development control in determining planning applications.

The Planning Advisory Notes are:

  • Telecommunications Apparatus
  • Clay Pigeon Shoots 
  • Landscape Strategy
  • North Vale Corallian Ridge
  • House Conversion to Flats
  • Shop fronts and Advertisements
  • New Residential Design Guide
  • Access for people with impaired mobility
