The Council works in partnership with the Planning Portal to provide a facility for the online completion of planning applications.

On the Planning Portal you can complete your application online, attach the relevant plans and documents and pay the fee electronically. The whole package can then be lodged without the need for document and plan printing by the applicant. If you would like to submit your application electronically, click on the apply button below. You must pay any fee due directly to the Planning Portal.
