How to apply

Service update

Due to the unprecedented demand on the planning service over recent months there is significant pressure on resources. This is resulting in delays to the validation, assessment and determination of applications within the usual timeframes. Furthermore our capacity to investigate enforcement complaints within the usual timeframes is also significantly affected.

At this time we thank you for your patience and ask that you continue to bear with us. The case officer will in turn make contact with you to provide a realistic timeframe for the assessment and determination of your application.

The best way is to apply online, complete the form, attach your documents and pay.

Apply for planning permission
