Communication on Planning and Building Control Service at Breckland Council
During the current issues around Covid-19 the Planning and Building Control Service will be having to adapt the service it can provide.
We are no longer able at present to accept paper copies of planning applications. Planning applications can be submitted via the Planning Portal at:
We will proceed with the validation of Planning Applications but will not be able to process them within the statutory time periods as neighbour consultation is limited and officers are not able at present to go on site.
We will work with applicants/agents to agree a determination period once the situation becomes clearer.
We will seek to determine current applications as soon as practicable subject to the limitations on site visits and consultation responses. Officers will work with applicants/agents to agree extensions of time when necessary.
All Building Regulation applications, including Building Notices, can only be accepted electronically via Submitaplan at:
We will be offering a reduced service at this time as site visits will not take place unless they can be done remotely via a video link. Please speak to your building control officer to discuss this.
We thank you for your patience at this time.
