Make a Planning Application
Alternative ways to apply for planning permission
It is also still possible to make a planning application by downloading the relevant Planning Application form and posting them with the correct fee, documents and plans to the Local Planning Authority.
This authority is under a duty to protect the public funds it administers, and to this end may use the information you have provided on this form for the prevention and detection of fraud. It may also share this information with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds for these purposes.
Send a copy of your completed planning application forms, required documents and plans to our offices by post or in person. Please ensure that your application is accurate, complete and contains copies of all drawings. This will help us deal with your application much quicker.
How much does it cost?
In most cases you will have to pay a fee when you apply for planning permission. Application fees are set by the government and are the same for all councils across the country. These are shown on the planning application fee form. If you are still unsure about how much you need to pay, you use the Planning Portal's fee calculator (external link)
What happens next?
When we receive your application we will check it to make sure it is accurate and complete. If there are any problems we will let you know as soon as possible and explain what you need to do.
If there are no problems, we will write to you to acknowledge receipt of your application. Then we will allocate a case officer to deal with your application.
