Services and information

The Planning Portal is the home of planning and building regulations information and the national planning application service for England and Wales.

Our aim is to provide answers, services and information to anyone involved in the planning process, from home owners and businesses to planning professionals and government officials. We deliver this by working in partnership with every local authority across England and Wales and continue to pursue new opportunities to transform planning and building.

Since it was established in 2002 the Planning Portal has safely processed more than two million planning applications and more than 85 per cent of all planning applications are submitted through our site. As the planning system evolves and modernises, the Portal will be there to guide all users through the process.
