Apply for planning permission
The County Council deals with planning applications for minerals and waste development and also for the County Council’s own development such as schools and libraries.
If you need planning permission for housing, commercial or industrial development contact the district council for where the property is located.
Submitting planning applications
Planning applications can be submitted either online via the Planning Portal or by post. At present minerals applications can only be submitted by post.
Please note: when submitting applications relating to Nottinghamshire County Council developments via the Planning Portal ensure that the regulation 3 tick box is selected.
If you wish to submit your application by post, you can download the relevant planning application forms from the table at the bottom of this page.
Supporting documents / validating your application
Since 2008 local planning authorities have been required to publish a list of information they require to "validate" planning applications. This Validation document forms two components, the national requirements, including the application form, the fee, certificates etc and secondly, specific local validation requirements known as the "Local List". The Government requires local planning authorities to operate a "local list" which is no more than two years old.
Following a review of the previous Validation document and period of consultation the County Council approved its latest Validation Guidance at Planning and Licensing Committee in January 2018. This forms the basis on which the Council will validate all future incoming planning applications. This may be viewed below;
As most planning applications are now submitted electronically, and the County Council subsequently undertakes consultations on them electronically, it is important that all submitted plans and documents are in a format that is readable and scalable. To comply with this your attention is drawn to the Electronic Submission section of the Validation Guidance.
The Validation Guidance has a checklist confirming which documents have been submitted in support of the planning application. This should be completed and submitted with your application. A word version of this checklist is set out below;
If you require any further advice on what information to submit with your application please contact the Development Management Team.
Most planning applications are accompanied by a fee and applications cannot be validated until the correct fee has been paid.
A schedule of planning application fees can be found on the Planning Portal website.
To make a payment for planning application please use one of the following options:
- online payment
- over the telephone by calling the Planning Support Officer on 01159 932 584
