Our proactive approach to planning and other essential business services delivered by the council, is designed to make the process as business-friendly as possible, to facilitate investment, economic growth and job creation in the area. The Woodside Local Development Order (LDO) is an example of this. By relaxing some planning restrictions through the LDO, resident businesses can complete certain works without needing to apply for planning permission, thereby saving these businesses time and money.
Each new business to the area is given a dedicated account manager and single point of contact within the Council to make their relocation/expansion as efficient as possible.
