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.
