What you will need when submitting a planning application

How to find the validations you need

Use our pdf checklists

Use our pdf checklists below that have links back into our site pages giving explanations of the validations you will need.

Use our filter list

You can also use the filter to bring up your application type. The list will then change to include only the items you will need to have ready when you submit an application.

Extra requirements

You may be asked for other validations to support your application. View the list of other validation documents that may be needed

Submit online

We want you to submit applications online wherever possible through the Planning Portal.

Where applications are submitted as hard copy rather than online, we will need four copies to be submitted for a valid application. This includes all forms, plans and accompanying information. In some cases we may request more than four copies.

Planning Portal - The best way to apply

The easiest way to go about planning is to use the Planning Portal website.

It has detailed information about the planning system in England and Wales and it guides all users through the process.

Applications made through the portal come to us to be assessed.
