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.
Once an application is valid and registered, the planning case officer will visit the application site to assess the proposals. Officers are unable to make appointments for such visits but will make themselves known to the householder at the time of the visit if appropriate. If an officer is unable to view the site independently, they will make an appointment for a suitable time to visit.
June 2018 Update - Please note, a full review has been undertaken of the adopted Local Validation Requirements. The existing list will remain unchanged at present. The Local Validation Requirements can be found through the application specific list, using the drop down box below.
