How to apply

Some users of the Planning Portal are experiencing an issue when accessing applications. If you clear the cache of your web browser it can allow you back in. We are working on a proper fix.

You can submit an application to us in a variety of different ways:

  • the Planning Portal: you can submit and pay for an application online and find help and guidance in completing your submission.
  • by post: if you choose to submit an application by post, please include two hard copies. Printable application forms can be found on the planning portal. You can still use our online payment system if you submit your application by post.

If your application is invalid and the requirements not submitted within 28 days we will not progress the application further and return the application fee (if applicable) minus a percentage for the work completed by the Registration Team.

See our validation checklist to find out what information you will need to submit with your application.
