Development control

Find out how we manage planning applications related to minerals, waste and county council developments.

Development control fulfils our legal responsibility for determining minerals and waste development planning applications outside the two national parks, and our own development.

We are responsible for:

  • dealing with all planning applications for minerals, such as quarries plus oil and gas sites, waste landfill and recycling developments, and our own development, such as schools, libraries, and highways; and
  • monitoring, compliance and enforcement of planning matters associated with minerals and waste sites and our own development proposals.
