The council and its Planning Service are based in Beverley, which was voted by the Sunday Times in 2018 as one of the best places to live in the Country.

We are a busy department dealing with an interesting and varied caseload of major and minor planning applications including large housing schemes; renewable energy proposals including solar farms, on shore windfarms and biomass plants; infrastructure and industrial projects.

We value our Development Management team for their experience, skills, knowledge and commitment and are constantly developing the service with investment in new technology and training for the future.
