Making an application online via the Planning Portal

Check, Pay and Submit – Complete the online application

Check

The system automatically checks that application is ready to submit. The green progress bar and blue tick icon will indicate when each section is complete. When all sections are complete and the application is ready to be submitted, the ‘Declare and submit’ button will become active (clickable).


Pay and Submit

Once you have completed the declaration and payment section, clicking on the ‘Pay and Submit’ button will initiate the payment process. The application status will then change to ‘Payment pending’. Once payment is confirmed, the application will be submitted to the Local Planning Authority (LPA), allowing them to download and validate it.

If your application does not attract a fee, then you can simply complete the declaration and ‘Submit’ the application directly to the LPA.

Please note: The system will only submit an application to a single LPA. If your site is within more than one LPA’s boundary, then please contact us1 when you have submitted.
