Planning application forms

The Council used to offered informal planning advice. This included advice on household planning permission. The advice was not legally binding and offered for a small fee.

From the 1st November 2016, the Council stopped offering this service. Sometimes a final legally binding decision is needed on if a homeowner needs planning permission. A certificate of Lawfulness of Proposed Use or Development is needed in these cases.

This is under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. This legally binding certificate is needed by lenders before they release funds.
