Submission of applications
Where an application is received without a fee or with an incorrect fee, the 8-week period for decisions will not begin until the correct fee is received.
ONCE AN APPLICATION IS REGISTERED, THERE IS NO PROVISION FOR THE REFUND OF FEES PAID TO LOCAL PLANNING AUTHORITIES IN RESPECT OF PLANNING APPLICATIONS.
Only ONE copy of the necessary forms are required together with ONE copy of a plan to a scale of not less than 1:100 (1cm to 1 metre) showing the proposals clearly and including, where applicable, elevations of external appearance and plan views. If you live in a Parish, you will need supply TWO copies of all documentation.
The plans should also show the site location to a scale of not less that 1:1250 indicating the position of the site in relation to the surrounding area. A separate note giving further advice on plans and drawings is enclosed.
Applications for outline permission will normally only require ONE copy of the necessary forms together with ONE site location plans (unless the application site falls within a Parish - then TWO copies are required) although the Local Planning Authority is empowered to ask for additional plans necessary in order for them to reach a decision.
