Our planning awards

Our Planning Service is fully committed to delivering high quality services and constantly strive to develop fresh, new and innovative ideas. These can be about how to make life a little bit easier for anyone using the services we provide, through to how we make Plymouth a better place in which to live, work and play. It's all about trying to make a real difference to people's lives.

While we recognise that we'll always need to continue to improve, we're proud too of our achievements, many of which have been recognised nationally, regionally and locally through awards. We've identified below awards that have been made directly to the Council for the work we've led on and to other organisations where our teams have made a positive contribution. We can be equally proud of both.
