Planning applications

You can apply for planning permission through the Planning Portal, We encourage this type of application, the benefits include:

  • no printing and postage costs Smarter Planning Champion
  • 24 hours a day service
  • ability to create an electronic location plan
  • add any attachments to your submission (plans etc)
  • calculate and pay the fee online

 

You can still make applications in paper to the Planning Office. All applications cannot be processed without the correct form, fee and relevant supporting information.

 

 

 

Please check that you have everything you need before submitting your application.  More information on each of these subjects is available from the links below.

 

 

 

Do I need planning permission?

If you are unsure whether alterations to your home requires planning permission you can complete our
Do I need Planning Permission? form.  We will then check whether your proposal will need planning permission and advise you accordingly.

 

This check is provided for a fee of £25.

 

For non-domestic enquiries please see our Pre-application advice page.

 

The Planning Portal's interactive house and terrace guides provide easy access to information on many common householder projects. You should still check with the Planning Department to see if planning permission is required. It makes good sense to do this - for your own peace of mind; for record purposes when selling property; when raising the money; or to show anyone who questions your right to build.
