Prepare a planning application
If you need planning permission, you can use the Planning Portal's guide to application types to check what type of application you need to submit for the works that you want to do.
We can only assess and decide on planning applications that have all the information we need. When you prepare a planning application, you should make sure it has all the information we need, and that the information is accurate and correct. If any information is missing or is wrong, then we will make your application invalid. This slows down the planning process. You should check the validation checklist for your application type before you submit an application.
