Apply for planning permission

Planning application process

If you are planning on carrying out building work you may require planning permission. You can submit a planning application online using the e-Planning service. 

Before applying please read our planning guidelines.

You can read our advice on major developments if you are planning a large development.

Please be aware that you may also need to apply for a Building Warrant.

Work that may not require permission 

If you are only making small alterations you may not require permission. See our page on permitted development for further information.
