Planning Application Forms

Submit an application online or print forms and checklists

You can submit and pay for an application online using the UK Planning Portal, where you can also find help and guidance in completing your submission.

If you instead choose to submit an application by post, please include both the completed form and completed specific checklist for your application type.  Printable application forms and checklists for each application type can be found in the table below.

Using both thepdf icon Local List of Documents [155kb] and the specific checklist for your application will help you decide what else you should include in your submission. The Local List includes the national standard requirements specified by central government and we have no discretion to change these. 

With effect from 1 January 2015, please also use CIL forms where appropriate; see pdf icon when must I supply a CIL PAAIR form? [36kb] for more information.

Please note:

  • An application cannot be valid if it does not include all of the required documents and appropriate fee.
  • Any plans you include must be to a recognised scale - please do not include plans with disclaimers relating to their scale as we will be unable to validate your application
  • In some cases there is a requirement for sectional elevationsroof plans and a pdf icon design and access statement [7kb]
  • For a Listed Building Consent, a pdf icon Design and Access Statement for Listed Building Consent [7kb] will always be required
  • Once an application is valid, there is a right of appeal if the application is not determined within specific deadlines see pdf icon futher notes [5kb]
