Safety Notice to Site Visits

Safety precautions that should be made in relation to site visits in planning applications.

Please be advised that the assessment of planning applications will include inspection of the site by officers of the local authority and may also include inspection by officers of other statutory bodies.

It is your responsibility to ensure that access is made available to any inspection officer, and that the property is safe for inspection. In this regard, you are required to ensure that there are no hazards on the property, such as:

  • Unsafe ground, excavations, trenches or holes (any trial holes must be made suitably safe for inspection)
  • Loose dogs or other dangerous animals
  • Items of a noxious or dangerous nature such as chemicals and machinery
