Planning Applications

Dealing with Your Application or Enquiry

While we work on a replacement Local Plan for the Isles of Scilly, the Council has agreed a partnership with Exmoor National Park Authority for them to provide support and advice with the planning work on the Islands. If you submit an application or enquiry to the Council, Exmoor Planning Officers may progress this work on our behalf. Please be assured that the Exmoor Officers are in regular contact, and working together, with Planning Officers on the Isles of Scilly so that there is consistency of advice. Any final decision on an application will be taken by the Council in the normal way. 

The list of planning applications is available to view below.
