Please note that the planning team is currently experiencing very high volumes of casework presently and this may mean that it takes longer than normal to respond to you. We will endeavour to do so at the earliest opportunity.

When you are ready to apply, please use the appropriate application form which will be found on the Planning Portal. You will need to make sure your submission meets all our Validation Requirements, and you may also need one or more of these additional forms.

Application fees, where required, should be paid at the time the application is submitted. VAT is not applicable to these fees. A copy of the full Regulations may be purchased from any branch of her Majesty's Stationery Office (

You may also need approval under Building Regulations.
