Apply online - Planning Portal
The best way to apply for planning permission is online through the Planning Portal. You complete the form, attach your documents and make payment.
From 10 September 2018 the Planning Portal will charge a £20 fee for submission of planning applications through its service across the UK. This is a Planning Portal service fee, and proceeds are not passed to the Local Planning Authority.
To find out more, please visit the Planning Portal website.
The Planning Portal's planning application service is separate to their building control application service. In order to begin a planning application you first need to create a planning account, even if you already have a building control application account on the Planning Portal.
Before you apply you should;
- Check if you need permission for the work you want to do
- Find out what you need to supply with an application
- Understand how much it will cost
Paper application forms
If you cannot submit online, you can download and print a paper form from the Planning Portal. You can then complete this and send it into us.
