The City Council actively encourages the use of the Planning Portal for online submission of Planning Applications, we currently receive 50% of all applications online and are seeking to increase this further.

The Planning Portal Service is free and registration is easy, the benefits include;

  • Immediate delivery and acknowledgement
  • Savings on postage and printing costs
  • Online help function when completing applications
  • Online record of your completed applications
