Submitted an application - what happens now?

Your application is checked and registered

We will check your planning application to ensure compliance prior to submission and then validate it.

When an application is received, it is checked to make sure all the necessary information, supporting documents and the correct fee have been supplied. This is called validation which we aim to do within three working days.

If we require more information or the information that has been submitted is insufficient we will contact you to explain what is needed. We do not register incomplete or invalid applications.

If we have all the information we need your application will then go through the registration process.


At registration we consult the relevant statutory consultees and neighbours that may be affected by the proposed development. All of the information submitted with your application, unless confidential, is published on our planning online system.

Once registered, you will receive written confirmation providing your application reference number, the name of the planning officer who will be dealing with your application, a target date for a decision and a green site notice which you should display on or near the application site.
