Making a planning application
You can apply for planning permission yourself or employ an agent to do it for you. Your planning application must include a fee and a location map showing the site you want to develop.
Asking the planning office for advice
If you think you need to apply for planning permission, contact your council’s local planning office. They'll tell you if you need planning permission.
- give you an application form
- tell you material to include with your application such as drawings
- confirm planning application fee
