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 are able to register valid applications, consult with neighbours and advertise applications. Site visits will be limited at present but officers will work with applicants and agents to find an appropriate way to assess sites and determine applications.
We will continue to work with applicants/agents to agree determination periods once the situation becomes clearer.
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.
You can now access our public facing mapping system where you can identify public information about any site within the district. This system can be accessed on the My Maps section ofMy Breckland Page
