Planning Application Forms

The Council has recently reviewed its position as far as it relates to informal planning advice, particularly as far as it relates to giving advice on the need for planning permission on householder developments. Until recently the Council offered this service for a small fee. The advice however was not legally binding.

From the 1 Nov 2016, the Council will no longer offer this service. We advise however that should a definitive legally binding decision be required on whether a householder proposal requires planning permission or not, a Certificate of Lawfulness of Proposed Use or Development under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990  [as amended] should be applied for. This legally binding certificate is often a requirement of lenders before funds are released.

All of these various different Planning Application forms are available to download below, along with guidance for each. These new forms have been introduced nationally by the government to replace all local authorities' own versions. Please note that:

  • The application form comprises only part of your submission. Various supporting documents will also be required.
  • We only require 1 copy of the form and supporting documents.
  • In line with the 2018 updated Data Protection (GDPR) regulations you should only use the forms linked below and not previous versions.
  • You may submit your application online or alternatively you can download the appropriate form below
