Making Your Planning Application

Your application

A planning application consists of different forms, plans and supporting information.  Some applications will require information, such as a Design and Access Statement, to justify the proposal.  An application may also include the history of the site, photographs or evidence of discussions with neighbours.  We welcome any information you feel is relevant and the more information you can provide the better.

 A S106 Legal Agreement will be required for every application for the development of 10 new dwellings or more and potentially for other forms of development.
