Application documents

The application documents are publicly available and easily accessible. Application documents for the above projects can be viewed on the relevant project page and hard copies of the application documents are also available to view free of charge at various locations in the vicinity of the proposed development site. To find out where you can view the application documents, contact the Planning Inspectorate case team (contact details can be found on the relevant project page).

The Planning Inspectorate does not itself have the facilities to produce large quantities of printed material. The most appropriate means, and we expect the quickest means of obtaining copies of application documents will be to contact the developer who will be able to process these requests at a cost. If you ask the Planning Inspectorate for paper copies of application documents this will be subject to the charging policy.
