Planning Application Forms

Submit an application online or print forms and checklists

You can submit an application to us in a variety of different ways:

Currently, 53 per cent of submitted applications are invalid.

The most common reasons for an application being invalid are:

  • incomplete or missing CIL forms (see Icon for pdf 'when must I supply a CIL PAAIR form?' [36KB]  for more information)
  • incomplete or incorrect Certificate of Ownership
  • incorrect or missing fee
  • incorrect location/site plan including red line, OS license, and access to the nearest highway
  • incorrect plans including disclaimers ('Do Not Scale'), errors between both existing and proposed elevations and floor plans

We operate on a "two strikes and out" approach to all invalid applications. This means that if an application is not valid after two attempts from the initial submission, we will not progress the application further and will return the application fee (if applicable) minus 25 per cent for the work completed by the Planning Registration Team.

Using both the Icon for pdf Local List of Documents [99KB]  and the specific checklist for your application will help you decide what else you should include in your submission. The Local List includes the national standard requirements specified by central government and we have no discretion to change these.
