Apply for planning permission

Apply for planning permission

From 5 March 2018 we are introducing an administration charge of £50 for planning applications which are invalid and where the additional information requested is not submitted within the time frame given (10 days from the date of the invalid letter). This will be deducted from the planning fee refund. The planning portal is a national website for all planning permissions and information in England. To submit your application online or download and print a paper version please using the link below.

Planning Portal    

You can explore the Planning Portal’s Interactive House for guidance on permitted development and many common householder projects.

For all application submitted via the Planning Portal, you must check with us that the fees quoted are correct.  Incorrect fees mean we cannot validate or determine your application. You can contact us by email

You can view the planning portal fee calculator here.

Planning fees are set in accordance with the regulations of the Department for Communities and Local Government.

Please use these links for pre-application advice and a step by step guide to making planning applications.   

We have also produced a guide to help with submitting a valid householder application.

As part of our Customer First Programme and keeping customers informed, we advise the expected validation time frame is currently around 10 working days from the date an application is received.

Building control applications can also be submitted online with ourselves or the Planning Portal.
