Public Access to Planning Files and Information - Practice Note 1

Planning serves the public interest and planning decisions affect everyone. If the planning service is to work effectively, people must be encouraged and enabled to participate in the planning process.

Wyre Forest District Council is committed to encouraging public participation in the process of determining planning applications.

We aim to be open and transparent and this practice note is intended to set out clearly what information the public are entitled to, what information we will release on a voluntary basis and how and when this information will be made available.
