How to apply
What an application needs
Before you send us your application make sure you know what plans, drawings and supporting documents you need to include.
A valid application will need:
- a completed application form
- ownership certificates
- the correct fee
- plans and drawings
- supporting documents
No copies are needed when you send us an application online. For large scale developments, where a number of A1 or A0 size plans are sent, you might be asked to send us a complete set of plans, drawings and supporting documents in paper format. If you send us an application by post or deliver by hand, always include two copies of the form and all supporting documents.
When sending a major application send us one complete set of plans, drawings and supporting documents in paper format. Also send a full copy of the application in PDF format on three CDs. If an Environmental Statement is included give us this in PDF format on eight CDs.
Pre-submission validity check
We can check your application to make sure it is completed correctly and you have included all necessary information. This helps to register an application.
Planning conditions and legal agreements
