What is a householder planning application?
This sort of application is for people who want to alter or enlarge their house, build a shed, garage or other 'outbuilding'. This type of application would also be used for any other works within the curtilage (boundary/garden) of a house that need planning permission.
If you aren't sure whether planning permission is needed for this type of application then you can find out by completing our self-certification forms.
If you know planning permission would be required but want our advice before submitting a planning application, we offer a pre-application query service.
As part of this service we will write to you to let you know whether what you want to do might be likely to get planning permission or not. We also offer meetings as part of this service.
Fees for planning applications, pre-application advice and other enquiries, including self-certification, can be found here.
