Useful application forms

If you need planning permission, the best way to apply for planning permission is through the government's planning portal, which is designed to help you complete an application and create a professional quality site location plan by downloading appropriate Ordnance Survey maps.

It even calculates the correct fees for you and allows you to pay online.

You don't have to complete your application in one go - you can re-visit and re-edit when it suits you - it's that easy! When complete, your application and site map can be printed and mailed, or sent to our planning department electronically. You will then be able to track the progress of your application online throughout the approval process.
