PDF forms for all current consent types

We appreciate that not everyone in every circumstance will always be able to apply online.

Therefore, as well as providing the online application service, we also support Local Authorities by providing blank PDF forms.

We would always recommend that you provide links to the forms on our site rather than downloading and hosting your own copies as this will ensure that your users are always provided with the latest versions.

Additionally, we maintain a change log for all our PDF forms that can be viewed on our Knowledge Hub group.

Planning applications

We provide forms with specific Local Authority branding for all our online planning consent types, these can be downloaded, printed and completed by hand.

This branding is based on a logo that your authority has provided. This can be updated at any point by raising a call with our support desk.

View details of the specification for the logo image.

Additionally, we provide an 'extended' set of forms for a range of contents that we plan to add to the online service going forward.

These can be downloaded and completed using the free Adobe Acrobat Reader applications on desktop and mobile devices; or printed and completed by hand.

You can access all of our PDF planning applciation forms via our 'Paper forms' section.

We also maintain a spreadsheet of links to all our forms that you can use to provide direct access from your own website. However, we would suggest that these are presented as a secondary option to the 'preferred' online application route.

All our forms are based on Government legislation and guidance so should facilitate submission of valid applications.

To support the forms, we maintain a 'standalone' planning application fee calculator as well as a PDF version of the fee schedule for planning applications; these remove the need for anyone to have to try and work out fees from the original legislation and its numerous unconsolidated amendments.

Building Control

We provide forms based on our standardised question set for Building Control applications.

These can be downloaded and completed using the free Adobe Acrobat Reader applications on desktop and mobile devices or printed and completed by hand.

The forms can be accessed on the links below, and are also presented to any user who attempts to make a Building Control application to an LABC department that is not currently enabled on our online service.

If you want to discuss enabling online Building Control applications for your authority, please get in touch.

Community Infrastructure Levy

We provide CIL forms based on Government legislation and guidance. These are also referenced directly from the CIL guidance on GOV.UK.

The forms can be downloaded and completed using the free Adobe Acrobat Reader applications on desktop and mobile devices or printed and completed by hand.

Users can be directed to https://www.planningportal.co.uk/cil to access the forms as well as information and guidance to assist in their use.
