Planning applications one-stop-shop

New legislative changes and guidance relating to prior approvals for new dwellings, changing construction hours, changes to the use classes order, extensions to time limits to enable implementation of planning permissions, permitted development rights to support 5G and extend mobile coverage and guidance in relation to holiday parks, caravan parks and campsites.

While the local planning authority cannot recommend agents to assist with or make an application on your behalf, we have put together some information on those agents that do submit applications to us which may assist you in choosing one. Please see the Planning agents page for more information.

Visit the Making a planning application page (below) to select the type of application you need from the menu and you can see all the validation requirements you need to consider when making your application.

Please note that, while the validation requirements indicate all application types, some are covered by specific regimes, and the documents listed there are those the legislation asks for and not specifically local validation requirements. Applications such as hazardous substances consents and prior notifications are not subject to local validation requirements.
