Planning Update

Planning Services is currently operating a continued service with officers working from home following government advice. A duty officer service for general planning enquiries remains in place via telephone and email (Development.control@dudley.gov.uk or 01384 814136).

Site visits are still being carried out by a limited number of officers and only when absolutely necessary. Officers will be contacting planning agents and applicants in this regard where relevant.

It remains the Council’s intention to determine planning applications and pre-application enquiries as efficiently as possible within the requisite target times.  However, given that these are unprecedented times it is inevitable that some delays may be experienced during the processing of planning applications and pre-application enquiries. Given this we ask that you please bear with us.

If you are submitting new planning applications or pre-application enquiries we would ask that these are submitted electronically wherever possible.

Planning applications can be submitted and paid for through the planning portal website. Alternatively you can submit planning or pre-application applications by email to Development.control@dudley.gov.uk , once the application has been received you will be contacted and requested to make the application payment using our online function and click pay online), payments cannot be made until application receipt has been acknowledged.  At this time we cannot accept any payments by cheque or telephone.  Postal applications may see a delay in registration.

All Development Control Committee meetings are taking place virtually for the foreseeable future.

We would like to thank the residents and businesses of Dudley for their understanding during this incredibly difficult time and can ensure you that we endeavour to maintain a service for as long as it is possible to do so.
