Thinking of doing work to your house or farm? From today the way planning applications are submitted to councils in Wales is changing.
A new ‘Planning Applications Wales’ website goes live today and will be the portal for submitting planning applications or associated consents to Local Planning Authorities, replacing the Planning Portal.
The website has been designed to make it quicker and easier for anyone to make a planning application and forms have been simplified. It is designed to meet the needs of users of the Welsh planning system.
To make a planning application, please visit our planning pages.
Guidance on what types of development can be pursued without the need to apply for planning permission along with further information on permitted development, the planning service and building regulations is available on our planning permission pages.
Cabinet Secretary for Energy, Planning and Rural Affairs Lesley Griffiths said:
“Our new Planning Applications Wales website will be the place people will need to go to submit their planning applications from today.
“In designing the new website, we’ve made sure the service meets the needs of Welsh users. The new website will also make it quicker and simpler for anyone wanting to submit a planning application.”
