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.
Since it was established in 2002 the Planning Portal has safely processed more than three million planning applications and over 90 per cent of all planning applications are submitted through our site.
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 in England and Wales and continue to pursue new opportunities to transform planning and building.
