Submitting an application

Help and guidance on how to submit an application.

Submit applications online 

Who can submit an application?

You have the choice to make the application yourself or to appoint an agent (for instance, a planning consultant, an architect, a solicitor, or a builder) to prepare their proposals and make the application. More advice can be found in our icon Who to employ guide [134Kb]. You can search for planning consultants on the RTPI website and registered architects on the Architects' Register.

Please note that as of the 1st January 2019 we longer accept cheques as a form of payment for planning applications. Payments should be made via the e-planning or alternatively by calling 01738 475300.

When you submit an application

When you submit an application, the information will be published on the Council's website. In order to comply with the General Data Protection Regulations, personal information, such as signatures, personal telephone and email details, will be removed before publication. Where appropriate, other "sensitive" personal information within documents will also be removed prior to publishing online. When provided, the applicant's home address will also be published on the website. In certain circumstances, it may be possible to remove this information once a decision on the application has been made. Please contact the Council with any requests for this to be done.

When corresponding with us by email, please ensure that you add our generic email address and to your email contacts to avoid our subsequent messages being directed to your spam box.
