The planning application process typically involves the following steps:


1. Pre-application consultation:

Before submitting a formal application, it is advisable to consult with your local planning authority (LPA) to gain valuable feedback and guidance.


2. Application submission:

Submit your application through the Planning Portal or your local council's website. The application should include detailed plans, supporting documents, and the relevant application fee.


3. Application review:

The LPA will assess your application, taking into account various factors, such as environmental impact, building aesthetics, and impact on neighbours.


4. Public consultation:

Neighbours and other stakeholders may be given the opportunity to comment on your application during the public consultation period.

5. Decision: The LPA will make a decision on your application, which can be approved, approved with conditions, or rejected. If your application is rejected, you can appeal the decision.
