Do I need planning permission

Duty officer service

We provide a Duty Planning Officer Service for householders, developers, agents and any other customer of the Planning Service.

The Duty Planning Officer can give general and non-site specific specialist planning advice and this service is provided free of charge, but there are limits as to what advice can be given. Please see the Accessing Planning Guidance document for further information.

The Duty Planning Officer is available between 9am and 1pm each weekday. You can make enquiries by email to or by calling Planning Reception on 01295 227006.

You can also visit Bodicote House in person and ask to see the Duty Planning Officer; if you decide to visit in person you don't need an appointment.
