The application process
You must send us your application forms along with a copy to the responsible authorities at the same time. Once you have done this there will be a 28 day consultation period.
You must display a notice on your premises with details of the application. You must also place a copy of of this notice in a local newspaper on at least one occasion within ten working days from the date of submission.
If your application is unopposed it is deemed granted on the 29th day after submission. If there are representations made against your application we will arrange a hearing at which your application will be determined by a panel of councillors.
You will be able to act as though your application is granted if you have not heard from us by the end of the target period.
Tacit consent will only apply once a full application has been submitted and you have received an acknowledgment.
