Making an application online via the Planning Portal
What happens next
Once the Local Planning Authority (LPA) has received your application successfully you will receive a confirmation email from the Planning Portal. This email will include a unique reference number which should be quoted in all correspondence with the LPA. Your reference number is also available from the ‘Applications’ page and within your application overview.
Please note: The email from the Planning Portal does not constitute the formal acceptance of your electronic submission by your Local Planning Authority.
Once the LPA has received your application, supporting documents and payment, it will register and validate it within its normal workflow processes and timescales. If the LPA needs more information or has any queries it will contact you directly.
For further information on the progress of your online application please contact your local authority quoting your reference number.
