How do I make a Planning Application?
Application Forms and Document Checklists
Planning application forms are designed to be used for specific application types. Some forms allow you to make more than one type of application (such as a planning application and a Listed Building Consent application, or a planning application and an application to display advertisements). By following the below link you can download application forms and guidance. Planning application checklists are also available which you can work through to ensure you supply all the relevant documents and plans to make a 'valid' planning application.
