Please Note: Only 1 original and 1 copy (2 in total) of Application Forms, Plans and Documents are required to be submitted unless otherwise stated.

Some users may experience issues when trying to open PDFs marked as "(external pdf)". This is due to these PDFs containing features that are not supported by some browsers. To work around this please read our Guide to Using External PDFs page.

Please Note: As from Wednesday 17th January 2018 Planning Fees will increase by 20% so applications submitted on or after this date will be subject to the new fees. Where applications have been submitted prior to this date, if further details are required then the additional fee will be requested. However, for certain types of applications where the Council has taken longer than its 5 working day target to check the application, the fee increase may be waived providing the information requested is returned in a timely manner.

Useful Information:

Further information can be found on our Agents Information page.

National Validation Requirements as well as Mandatory Local Information Requirements should always be submitted with any application. However, applicants should consider in advance, any local information requirements which might affect their particular application.

Local Information Requirements may not be necessary on many applications. If, however, it is found that this information is required following validation, the application may be made invalid. If any advice or assistance is required on this, then please contact the Duty Planning Officer.

With the increase in the submission of electronic planning applications and consultation with Statutory and other consultees now being carried out electronically, the Council has produced Guidance for Agents and Applicants (pdf)  when submitting plans and documents. The purpose of this is to help speed up the receipt of planning applications and also is in response to comments received from consultees.

Please note: For a Minor Material Amendment please use Form No. 25 (Removal or Variation of Condition)
