Submit a planning application

The quickest and easiest way to make your planning applications is online. You can do so using either the Planning Portal or iApply.


 Applying online has lots of advantages:

  • Your form is submitted immediately and you get confirmation that it has been received
  • Online help, including video tutorials    
  • An online record of your completed applications    
  • No wasted paper, post and printing costs. 

If you prefer to make a paper application, you can download forms from the Planning Portal (link is external) or forms are available from our council offices.

If you wish, you can appoint an agent, such as an architect or a builder, to make the application for you.
