Making An Application

Apply for planning permission

The best way to apply for a wide range of planning permission is online using the Planning Portal which will allow you to complete the relevant form, attach your documents and submit your payment. You can also apply online to discharge a condition.

If your application cannot be submitted online, you will be also able to download and print paper forms for submission from the Planning Portal website

Most planning applications need a location plan which shows the proposal in its surrounding context and a site plan (also known as a block plan) which shows the development in more detail, it needs to display any roads and/or buildings on land adjoining the application site. You can buy a planning map through the Planning Portal.

A guide explaining how the planning system in England works is available to view on gov.uk.

We offer a pre-application advice service which can help you to understand how we are likely to determine any subsequent planning application, and any changes that are likely to be needed, if any, to give your scheme the best chance of being granted a planning permission.

You can also use the following links to help you in the development of any proposed scheme.
