Make a planning application

1. Making a planning application

Planning Portal Guide can help you identify the correct 'planning authority' for your application.

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


Local list of validation requirements

This list sets out the information required for all applications to be validated.
