Submit your application through the Planning Portal

The Planning Portal helps you to:

  • Identify which forms you need to complete
  • Ensure you have completed the application form correctly
  • Attach relevant files including drawings and other supporting information
  • Produce a site location plan
  • Calculate the correct fee and pay for your application online (where relevant)

Information provided on the application form and accompanying drawings and documents will be made available on the internet.

Each form is accompanied by help text and a checklist which you should read in order to ensure you have submitted all the information required. Further information on the additional supporting information listed in each checklist can be found in our Validation Requirements document, which sets out when particular information is required.

If you do not send all the information we need to deal with your application, we will not be able to register it and it will be returned to you with advice on what you need to do to ensure it is valid and complete.

Householder Applications

These forms should be used for works to domestic dwelling houses (not flats), including extensions, conservatories, garages, dormer windows, new access drives.

If you are unsure whether you need planning permission for your proposal then you should refer to our page on Residential Planning. Alternatively if you think permission is not required and you would like a legal determination to this effect, you can submit an application for a proposed Lawful Development Certificate.

Outline planning applications

An outline planning application is a means of establishing the principle of a proposed development without having to supply all of the details. The grant of outline planning permission will then be conditional upon the subsequent approval of details of 'reserved matters'

Prior notifications

The Government issued a new Statutory Instrument in May 2013 setting out new provisions for permitted development through the planning system. This significantly relaxes the controls on what will require planning permission. You will still need to notify the Council of your plans, via the application forms below, and we will also still need to notify neighbours of your proposals. The Council will then inform you as to whether you can proceed. If you receive confirmation from the Council that you can proceed with development, you will then also need to notify the Council in writing that the work has been completed. All work must be complete before the 30 May 2019.

Pre-application forms

Newcastle City Council offers a pre-application advice service which can informally assess whether planning permission is required and highlight potential issues which may arise during the course of any application. The service is provides an 'in principle' feedback on your proposal as well as more detailed discussions and negotiations on a scheme before you submit a formal planning application.
