Making a planning application
If you have established that planning permission is needed for a development, the next step is to make an application. You can apply online using the Planning Portal
Depending on the type of application, different documents will need to be submitted to make the application valid. If these documents are not submitted with the application it will not be submitted as valid and may be returned.
These requirements have been adopted in accordance with Paragraph 044 (Reference ID: 14-044-20140306) of the National Planning Policy Guidance (NPPG) and were formally adopted on the 20 June 2016.
June 2018 Update - Please note, a full review is due to be undertaken of the adopted Local Validation Requirements in the coming months. The existing list, in the meantime, will therefore remain unchanged. The Local Validation Requirements can be found through the application specific list, using the drop down box below.
