Planning Service Updates

Service update -

August 2021

We realise that users of our services are often having to wait longer than usual for a response. We are working hard to meet the unprecedented and sustained demand on our services, whilst providing the same quality and rigour in our assessment and determination of planning applications, tree works applications, planning enforcement complaints, pre-application advice requests and preparation of the draft Island Planning Strategy.

Please be assured that we will be in contact with you or your agent if we need any further information to help progress your planning application, tree works application, enforcement complaint, pre-application advice request or enquiry.

If you would like to be contacted for an update on your planning application, tree works application, enforcement complaint, pre-application advice request or enquiry please email planning.updates@iow.gov.uk stating any reference number you’ve been provided or a site address.

We will be able to provide an update more quickly this way than if you contact the case officer directly, as we are trying to let them focus on progressing your application, enforcement complaint, pre-application advice request or enquiry

Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.
