Planning application forms

We would always recommend that you apply online. However, if you do want a paper copy of an application form, you can download it here

Paper forms and guidance

Download the required document below or use the Planning Portal paper forms chooser.

Right-click on the required document and select the option to 'Save link as' to save a copy of the form to your computer. This will ensure full functionality as many of the forms are interactive PDFs that you can fill in on your computer, rather than having to print off and fill in by hand.

Please note, if you are choosing to make your application 'offline' you'll still need to submit all the required documents to meet national and local validation requirements.
