Development Management

The Council’s Development Management service is responsible for processing and determining planning applications and providing general advice about Town Planning legislation, procedures and policies/guidance. 

Coronavirus update

Tameside Council’s planning service remains open for business, with current applications being determined and new applications being validated and assessed. The council has put in place measures to ensure that staff comply with the central government guidance, with officers working remotely. As a consequence, meetings in person and accompanied site visits will not be taking place until further notice.
 
Officers have mobile phones and access to Skype so virtual meetings can be arranged.

Update - July 2021
 
Please be advised that due to a number of factors, including temporary capacity issues, an overall increase in total number of planning applications submitted to the authority and challenges associated with working arrangements in place in response to the ongoing pandemic, planning applications are taking longer than would otherwise be normal to validate, process and determine.  It may also take longer than usual to respond to other service requests including pre-application requests.  Measures are being put in place to minimise the extent of any delays and we thank you for your understanding. 
 
Please continue to use our live database of planning applications via the link below for updates on any applications submitted but note that they will not appear here until they are validated.

The Need For Planning Permission

Please note that the ‘interactive house’, ‘common projects’ and ‘mini guides’ links available at this link (the planning portal website) are particularly useful. Should you wish to gain formal confirmation from the Council that you do not require planning permission for your project and it would constitute ‘permitted development',  please submit a ‘certificate of lawfulness’ via the planning portal website.
