Submit a planning application

The most convenient way to submit your planning application is online via the Planning Portal.

The Planning Portal is a national website and applications submitted via the portal are sent directly to us as online submissions. It also offers a wide range of services and information on the planning system. We recommend submitting your application via the Portal as it is a quick and easy way to make an application and there is online guidance to help you through the process.

You can submit all your plans online if you have the facility to produce electronic drawings and you can obtain an electronic location plan from the website too. You can also pay the planning fee online.

Paper planning application

If you would prefer to complete a paper copy of the relevant application form, you download this from the Planning Portal.

The completed form, plans and any supporting documents can be posted or hand delivered to our offices:
