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, using the application forms below, and we will also still need to notify neighbours of your proposals. The Council will then tell you if you can proceed. If you get confirmation from the Council that you can go ahead with development, you will then also need to notify the Council in writing that the work has been completed.

 

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 any application. The service 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.

Did you know?

Submitting your application through either the Planning Portal or iApply will speed up the process.

 

As a minimum, you must provide the following documents:

• The correct application form

• The correct fee. You can calculate the correct fee here (external) and pay online or by phone here.

• The plans of the site.  Most planning applications will need two plans:  a Location Plan – which shows the site area and its surrounding area; and a Site Plan, which shows the proposed development in detail.  Here are some recommended websites which can help produce these.

• An ownership certificate  must be completed stating the ownership of the property. 

• Design and Access statement (if required). Find out more about design and access statements (external)

• Other requirements, depending on the type of application, are listed in our  Validation Checklist (pdf, 1mb)  (This file may not be suitable for users of assistive technology. Request an accessible format. ) .
