Planning Portal

Initially, we recommend you visit the Planning Portal website to see if planning permission is required for either home improvement projects or commercial or residential developments.

The Planning Portal provides answers to some frequently answered questions and offer guides covering a wide range of common projects.

Self Assessment Forms

If you are intended to do any extensions or alterations to your home, we have also developed a series of self assessment forms which will help you to assess whether you require planning permission for your proposed development.

You can also view our step by step guide for planning advice for homeowners.

If you want written confirmation that planning permission is not required you will need to apply for a certificate of lawful proposed development.

Other Permitted Development Enquiries

We also have a series of other forms for you to complete in relation to the following enquiries

Home Business Enquiry

Childminding From Home Enquiry

Satellite and Microwave Antenna Enquiry

Solar Panels Enquiry

New Residential Vehicular Access/Dropped Kerb Enquiry

If you want written confirmation that planning permission is not required you will need to apply for a certificate of lawful proposed development.

Lawful Development Certificates

If you want written confirmation that planning permission is not required, refer to Lawful development certificates (GOV.UK) for more information.

If you wish to make an application for a certificate of lawful proposed development this can be done through the Planning Portal or the application form with guidance can be downloaded from our website NWLDC - Downloadable Forms.
