Council Services

The Council provides a number of varied services to businesses, from planning, to support with film locations.

Other services have been established with the purpose of supporting business needs and to meet standards.

The Council also has a role to play as a regulator and information on conforming to regulation and how to obtain licenses can be found on the Regulation section of the website.
