Online planning applications
Each planning application requires a set of supporting documents. These are set at national and local level, and vary for each application.
Your application will not be valid until you send us all the required documents. Once we receive a valid application, we’ll consider it.
1) No Ordnance Survey map (OS Map)
2) Incorrect or no fee
3) Failure to send an appropriate flood risk assessment
4) Failure to send an appropriate design and access statement
5) Failure to send a Construction Methods Statement for basement and/or light well excavation
Please make sure all drawings sent with your application contain a metric scale bar.
The fee we charge to assess a planning application is set by the government and depends on the scale and nature of the proposed development.
To find out if your development would be liable for CIL, and what you will need to do, visit our CIL webpage.
These agreements are normally to offset the impact of large-scale developments, and help ensure there are enough services and infrastructure, such as highways, recreational facilities, education, health and affordable housing to support new large scale developments. For more information visit: Section 106.
This is our new project management tool to help you with more complex applications. Visit our Planning Performance Agreements webpage for more information.
Application forms are available to download on the planning portal.
