In light of the latest Government advice on delaying the spread of Coronavius COVID-19, the Planning Inspectorate has recommended that its staff avoid unnecessary or non essential travel. This may result in some events such as site visits, hearings and inquiries being cancelled.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but can assure you that we are considering alternative arrangements.

Further advice about future arrangements will be published here. In the meantime we appreciate your patience. In the meantime, if you have an urgent enquiry please email your case officer.

The Planning Inspectorate has published guidance on site visits, hearings, inquiries and events in connection with:

  • Planning Appeals, Rights of Way and Commons Act 2006 - site visits, hearings and inquiries - Updated 18 March 2020
  • NSIP Applications - Updated 18 March 2020
  • Local Plan Examinations - Updated 18 March 2020

Please be aware that this advice will be kept under review and could change at short notice to reflect Governments wider advice. So please ensure that you check this website regularly.
