Making Your Planning Application
A planning application is made up of different forms, plans and supporting information. A S106 Legal Agreement will be required for every application* for the development of new dwellings and possibly for other forms of development. Some applications must be accompanied by supporting information, for example a Design & Access Statement, for which there is guidance on this page.
The more information you can supply with your application to support and justify your proposal the better. This may take the form of the history of the site, photographs or evidence of discussions with neighbours. We welcome any information you feel is relevant
You have the option to apply online! Online application submission allows you to fill in simplified application forms and certificates, attach drawings and send your application to the Council over the internet.
