Submitting an application

Last Modified December 11, 2014

Applying online saves the expense and hassle of traditional paper applications. You can apply online using the Planning Portal.


It is important that you provide accurate drawings with sufficient details to illustrate your proposal to us and the general public. These must be to a recognisable metric scale.  Please ensure that you clarify on the drawing the page size you have to print in order to achieve this metric scale.

There are requirements for what must be submitted as part of a planning application. These are set out in the National Planning Practice Guidance Notes


There are a number of different forms for different types of development. It is important you choose the correct form and fully complete all sections relevant to you. Application forms are available online, but please check with us if you are not sure which form to use. Alternatively, you can download the relative planning application form and send it to us.



The fee should be paid at the time the application is submitted.  Find out the cost of your application and how to pay at Planning Application fees and how to pay
