Online services for planning, building control and licensing applications will be unavailable Monday 4 December and Tuesday 5 December due to essential maintenance.

Following the process on our unauthorised encampments page, we will visit and assess an unauthorised encampment on council owned land within 48 hours and then daily where possible.

Initial notification of a newly arrived encampment will be given to the local MP, local members, the clerk to the local town or parish council, the council’s corporate contact centre, press officer and the police. Information about the status of the encampment will then be updated daily on this page.
