Planning applications

Planning applications

For household planning applications please contact your local district council or find out more using this interactive guide.

Planning applications are often needed to:

  • Build or extend property, including domestic and commercial premises
  • Alter buildings and land in conservation areas or listed buildings
  • Install signage and advertisements
  • Change the use of land or property

We process and decide on applications for:

  • Managing waste
  • Extracting minerals
  • Applications for our own use, eg County Council owned or managed schools and libraries and other buildings

Submitted applications

On our BucksPlanning Public Access website you can view submitted planning applications, download application documents, comment on an application, find important application dates, see if an application has been appealed and monitor application progress. This site also allows you to view current Enforcement cases.
