Applications can be made on line via the Planning Portal or by using one of our application forms.

The application forms below can be downloaded and completed and sent to us. Please select the appropriate form for the development or work that you are applying for and submit with the correct fee, plans and required supporting documents.

Please note we are not able to check applications on an ad hoc basis. Please either submit application electronically, through the Planning Portal, via royal mail or by hand.  The application will then be processed and you will be notified, either in writing or by email, if the application is valid or if there are outstanding documents. Please note we do not accept applications via email where they can be submitted through the planning portal.

Applying via the Planning Portal

The Planning Portal provides a number of guides to help users when making an application.

Application forms and guidance notes

Applications cannot not be started until all the correct information and documentation is received including the form(s) correctly completed, the correct fee, where due, and the appropriate supporting plans and documents.
