Frequently asked questions

Can I complete a planning application offline

Yes. All our online application forms are also available to download as PDF documents which you can print out, complete and submit by post.

There are also additional downloadable forms for application types that are not currently supported in the online system.

You can access all these in our ‘Paper Forms’ section.

We recommend that the free Adobe Reader software or Adobe Acrobat is used to view, complete and print our PDF forms. Many internet browsers and other software can be used to view PDF format files, but we cannot guarantee their compatibility or functionality.

Please note: Our downloadable PDF forms are designed to be printed out and completed by hand.

If you would rather complete a form on your computer and then print it out, you are advised to use our online application service to complete the form and then use the ‘Print Entire Application’ function from the application overview.

Paper forms need to delivered/posted to the relevant Local Planning Authority along with the required supporting documents. You should not attach these application forms as supporting documents in the online application system.
