Applying online helps you to:

  • Identify which forms you need to complete
  • Help you have complete the application form
  • 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)

The information provided on the application form, drawings and documents will be made available on the internet.

Each form is accompanied by help text and a checklist, which you should read to make sure you have given us all the information needed. 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 we will advise on what you need to do to ensure it is valid and complete.

To help us process your application as quickly as possible it is important that you take time to read the attached guidance. You should also complete and return the appropriate checklist with your planning application.

In addition  to the Validation Checklist and in accordance with government guidance from the 1st August 2021, any planning applications for buildings 18m in height or more or 7 or more storeys containing two or more dwellings or educational accommodation will be required to be accompanied by a fire statement .

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.

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 us of your plans, using the application forms below, and we will also still need to notify neighbours of your proposals. We 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 us in writing that the work has been completed.
