Coronavirus update – Planning Service – 30th March 2020
In line with Government advice and to keep our staff and customers safe, our offices at Eastburn are now closed. However our planning team can still be contacted via email [email protected]. We will continue to process planning applications which have already been submitted. If you are submitting a new application please do so electronically through the planning portal website. We are unlikely to be able to deal efficiently with planning applications received by post or paid for by cheque.
Due to our offices being closed there is likely to be a delay in receiving any letters or documents sent by post. Please send all correspondence to [email protected]. If you have sent anything to the planning department within the last week please can you email [email protected] so that a colleague can contact you.
We are continuing to progress pre-application enquiries but can only accept online BACS payment. We would appreciate the submission of site photographs so that our officers do not need to visit your property.

Northumberland National Park Authority, as the Local Planning Authority, makes decisions on applications for many types of development. These decisions are made either by meetings of the Development Management Committee or by the Authority’s officers under the delegated powers approved by the Authority in June 2015 under the Scheme of Delegation.
