Planning Application Process

At Full Council on 25th July 2019 Members approved public consultation to adopt a Local Validation Checklist.  This consultation took place during August and September 2019.  All consultation responses were reviewed and as of  21st January 2021 Full Council approved the adoption of the Isles of Scilly Local Validation Checklist.  These are now in place and can affect what you need to submitt locally.  You can review the checklists in the link below.

Customer Satisfaction Survey

In order to improve our service, the department is working on a Satisfaction Survey, to see where we can improve what we do and communicate better with the community.  Watch this space!  But please get in touch with us if you have any feedback or suggestions on things we can do to assist with all things planning-related. The quickest way is by email: but you can also phone the department 01720 424455 or drop us a letter to the Town Hall.
