Planning Applications - Submit a Planning Application online

We recommend submitting and paying for all domestic planning applications online through The Planning Portal website which will speed up the application process.

Submitting your planning application online through the Planning Portal website, offers the following advantages :-

  • the same forms will be used by every local authority avoiding confusion about what is required
  • when you need two planning consents at the same time (eg. planning permission and listed building consent), you will only have to complete a single form
  • you can start completing an application, and stop and return to complete it at a later date
  • an improved online help service is provided to make sure you submit forms correctly
  • you can attach drawings and other files
  • you need only complete a single copy of your application instead of the usual 2 or more copies
  • you can pay over the phone, or by cheque.
