Planning Development Services

Disruption to Service

In order to facilitate upgrades the Development and Management site will not be available on Monday 08 February 2016 and Tuesday 09 February 2016.

It is expected that the service will resume on Wednesday 10 February 2016.

If you need to view any planning application information during this period, please contact our planning customer services via telephone on 01642 526022 or email

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The principal role of the Planning Development Services team is to determine planning applications.

The service also performs the following statutory functions:

  • Controlling advertisements
  • Protecting Listed buildings, Conservation Areas and trees with Preservation Orders (TPOs)
  • Enforcing against unauthorised development

We aim to provide a planning service which is helpful and accessible to all. A Duty Officer is available every day for general enquiries, however if you would like to speak to a specific Case Officer you must make an appointment as their availability cannot be guaranteed - please contact us with appointment requests.

The Council have teamed up with Trinity Mirror and several other authorities, including Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland, to use the latest mobile technology to bring details to members of the public at the touch of a button. The result is a free mobile app called Notiz, which is a pilot running for three months (alongside, not instead of, the traditional methods).

Stockton-on-Tees Notiz can be downloaded from the App Store or the Google Play Store for both Apple and Android devices. The app offers people who live or work in the Borough details of planning applications, and also works on geo-targeting so you have the very latest information which is most relevant to you.
