Contact the planning team

You can contact our  Planning teams and speak to the relevant officer for your area of the New Forest.

Call us on 023 8028 5345

We also offer free 15 minute phone appointments every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday with a Duty Officer.  The duty officer can assist you with simple questions if you are thinking about extending your home or carrying out minor works to your business's premises.
