Make a Planning Application

Planning Landscape

hould you propose a building or engineering operation, change of use or display of signage, however minor it may seem, some form of permission or consent may be required from the Local Planning Authority.

Bassetlaw District Council actively encourages the submission of Planning Applications using the Electronic Method, this means you only need to complete one set of forms and there are no printing or postage costs.

All planning application forms and guidance notes can be found electronically via the Planning Portal.

Validation and Registration

It is very important to submit all the required information with your application. This will allow for the validation and registration of your application to be carried out more efficiently and will assist us in determining your application within the statutory timeframe.

Your application will be considered against National Validation Requirements . However if if you think the development site is likely to require a bat survey or flood risk assessment for example, then it is recommended that you submit these even though they are not required to make the application valid.

It may become apparent through consideration of the application that additional information is required to enable the officers to properly assess and determine the application.  The Case Officer will contact you should this be the case and will discuss any Implications on the timescale of any decision and the possible need for an extension of time.

The Council's Local Validation List is currently under review and is purely an advisory document until the new Local Lists are adopted.

Further information regarding Making an Application is available on the GOV.UK website.
