Planning Applications for Minerals and Waste Development, and the County Council's Own Development

As Minerals and Waste Planning Authority, Devon County Council is responsible for deciding all planning applications for minerals or waste related development. The County Council is also responsible for deciding applications for their own developments, for example schools. For all other types of development you should go to the District, Borough, City or Unitary Authority or, where appropriate, to Dartmoor or Exmoor National Park Authority.
