Planning application forms

We encourage you to submit your application online using the Planning Portal as this will provide a step by step guide and ensure you are using the right form. The Planning Portal does not include the Local Validation Requirements or the associated forms. You will need to read the Local Validation checklists and download the relevant forms to send with your planning portal application.

If you are not using the Planning Portal, you can download a pdf form from this page. These forms are also on the Planning Portal. They cannot be completed electronically. They must be downloaded, printed and filled in by hand.

Please make sure you use the right form. Applications submitted on the wrong form cannot be validated and will delay your application.

Once you have chosen your form select the validation checklist next to it. This will provide you with details of what must be submitted with your application. If no document is listed then only the forms and documents stated on the forms are needed for validation. We may need further information later. Links are given to the validation checklist for each application type. Please print and fill it in for submission with your planning application.

Unless you submit your application online using the Planning Portal, you must submit the original and three copies.

The Council has prepared Design and Access Statements Guidance Notes to help applicants who are drafting a design and access statement. If you are making a planning application within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty you should submit an appropriate design statement as explained in the following Surrey Hills Design Guide

The Council has also adopted the waste and recycling materials storage and collection standards. These standards should be used by developers to ensure that adequate facilities are provided as part of development sites. The Council will require these standards to be met in the determination of planning applications.

The Council is no longer supporting the Ordnance Survey Map Return Scheme. Ordnance Survey maps are available online when making a planning application through the Planning Portal.
