If you haven’t already done so, check to see if you need planning permission here.

If you do need permission, before you make your application, make sure you’ve got everything you need – find your checklist here.

Once you’ve got everything you need, head to the Planning Portal to make your planning application online – this is the quickest way to get your application registered.

The following planning consents can be applied for online using the above link:

  • Householder planning consent
  • Full planning consent
  • Outline planning consent
  • Reserved Matters
  • Listed building consent
  • Advertisement consent
  • Lawful Development Certificates
  • Prior Approval
  • Removal/variation of conditions

You are currently unable to make ‘hybrid’ applications, applications for permission in principle, applications for a certificate of lawfulness of proposed works to a listed building or planning applications for development relating to onshore extraction of oil and gas online. The relevant forms can be downloaded here.

Make sure any attachments are in PDF and are no bigger than 5MB.
