For a planning application to be considered valid by the council, it will need to include a range of information known as 'planning application requirements'.
Our guide outlines what happens to an average planning application after it is submitted, including validation, consultation, how to comment on an application, and the decision-making process.
If your application is not decided within a set period, or if you disagree with the decision that is made on your application, you have the right to appeal.
To enable you to submit planning applications online, we work in partnership with the Planning Portal. They provide additional guidance and information about making planning applications, as well as resources for study and research.
You can also download and print out planning application forms, then post your application to us.
