How to prepare a valid planning application

Additional supporting documents

In support of your application you may wish to provide additional documents with your application if you feel these are relevant to your proposal.

During initial planning advice, or after you submit your planning application, your case officer may ask you to submit further information to support your application. By providing this information quickly and correctly it will allow us to make a decision on your application sooner. Details of these documents are set out below.

Note: these documents are not required for validation, however you are encouraged to submit them with your initial application where they are relevant to your proposal. If you choose not to submit the below information (if relevant to your proposal), this is done at your risk. If your case officer requests these documents after you've submitted your application, you will be charged to submit the documents as an amendment.

If you are uncertain what additional information may be required to support your application, use our Planning Advice Service.
