Development Control is the control of development and built structures. This is enforced by the Development Control Officer (DCO), who processes the applications for Planning Permission to develop land. Such applications can be the construction of new buildings and extensions to existing ones. The officer also monitors building construction activity.

Each DCO is assigned a development control area or district. The entire island is divided into fourteen (14) of these districts as seen in the displayed map. Shown below are the officers responsible for each district, these are subject to change.
