The County Council determines three types of applications:
- County Council developments (known as Regulation 3 application) which deliver a public service
- mineral development
- waste development
Hand-written signatures are not required as part of formal planning submissions. Please be aware that if you choose to add a hand-written signature on submissions then this will be included in the documents published by Cambridgeshire County Council.
