Useful planning information

View pages in this section

The planning system deals with a wide range of economic, social and environmental issues. The planning hierarchy incorporates a variety of public and private sector bodies, and many complex terms and acronyms are often used in this field.

The purpose of this section is to provide a quick reference guide to a selection of planning terms considered relevant at local authority level; particularly in light of the recent changes in the system.

In addition, there is a section dedicated to providing quick links to relevant planning bodies.

If the information you require cannot be found within this section, or the planning section as a whole; please contact us at
