What you need to do to get planning permission
Where planning permission is required you will need to make a formal planning application to the council via the Planning Portal.
To accompany your application you must give us specific documents, drawings and plans. Check our validation checklists before you apply to ensure you have included all relevant information. We will need a series of accurate drawings and plans that clearly define what you are proposing.
If you wish to purchase site location plans, you can buy plans from accredited suppliers through the Planning Portal, the government's planning website.
For further information please see our guidance on when a non material amendment [pdf] would be acceptable.
If in doubt contact us about the planning process before you undertake any work.
