Service standards for Policy and Research and Urban Design Teams
We will adopt a Local Development Framework by April 2008, in accordance with the published Local Development Scheme
We will produce up to do Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) for key sites and planning issues
We will normally consult in writing to relevant residents, businesses and landowners over changes to planning policies and guidance, and provide 6 weeks for them to make comments
We will normally respond to requests for observations on planning applications within 14 days from the date of receipt of a full set of appropriate drawings
We will respond to requests from residents for the designation of conservation areas or buildings of townscape merit within 14 days, stating whether we are prepared to carry out a detailed survey. If we cannot carry out the survey work at that time, we will give a clear commitment on when it will be done.
