Planning Portal - choosing your planning application

Once you know what type of application you're making, you should check what information you need to give us. This information is split into two groups:

  • National requirements

You can see all the national requirements on the Planning Portal.

  • Local requirements

To see what our local requirements are, you need to check our Local Validation List. The Local Validation List was last updated and reviewed on 7 July 2021. Some application types (such as Discharge of Conditions) do not have local requirements. 

If you want to build a new development, you'll also need to check the local drainage requirements
