Communication on Planning and Building Control Service at Breckland Council

During the current issues around Covid-19 the Planning and Building Control Service will be having to adapt the service it can provide.

Planning Applications:

We are no longer able at present to accept paper copies of planning applications. Planning applications can be submitted via thePlanning Portal or by email to planning@breckland.gov.uk

We are able to register valid applications, consult with neighbours and advertise applications. Site visits will be limited at present but officers will work with applicants and agents to find an appropriate way to assess sites and determine applications.

We will continue to work with applicants/agents to agree determination periods once the situation becomes clearer.

Building Regulations:

All Building Regulation applications, including Building Notices, can only be accepted electronically via Submit a Plan or by email at building.control@breckland.gov.uk

Site visits will be limited at present but officers will work with applicants and agents to find an appropriate way to assess sites and determine applications.  Remote Video Link will continue to be the preferred method.  Please speak to your Building Control Officer to discuss this

We thank you for your patience at this time.
