You can make your application online through the Planning Portal or by email or post using the relevant application forms.
Before submitting a formal planning application, you can ask the Development Management team for informal views on the work you wish to do. We encourage pre-application discussions as they can often speed up the application process, encourage and support good schemes and may help to reduce costs. For more information view the Planning Advice section.
Your application will need to be accompanied by all the necessary supporting information in order to make it ‘valid’. This will include the fully completed application form, the planning fee (see below), drawings/plans to a recognised metric scale plus any other information relevant to the application. For more information on the levels and type of information that will be required for your application please consult the Development Management Manual on the Welsh Government website.
