Submitting an application
There are a number of different types of application that can be submitted as part of the planning process, including:
- full planning permission
- outline planning permission
- change of use of land or buildings
- confirmation of compliance with conditions
- applications for a non-material amendment
Most planning application forms can be completed and submitted online using the Planning Portal.
If you submit your application online or by post, make sure you have read our planning checklists before submitting them.
Our planning application process page explains what happens after you submit your application.

Most applications need a planning fee. The decision to charge for planning applications has been made by Parliament and therefore the scale of fees is the same throughout England and Wales.
You can calculate the fee of your planning application using the fee calculator available at the Planning Portal.
There are some exemptions to fees and more information can be found in our fees and charges document (PDF File, 1,222kb). Upon receipt of your application, we’ll check the fee is correct.
We have also produced a planning fees and charges supplementary guidance document (PDF File, 906kb) to assist with certain applications that often raise queries.
You can pay using our online payment service. The service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If you submit your application online through the Planning Portal, you can pay when you apply.
Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) may need to be paid if planning permission is granted for your proposal.
Help with your planning application
To make sure you have all the relevant information with your application, we offer a pre-application advice service.
This service allows you to speak to a planning officer to identify and resolve any issues which may come up during the application process and consequently means a decision can be secured more quickly.
