Planning Applications

Not all work will require planning permission.  You can check the interactive guide on the Planning Portal to see what does and doesn't need planning permission.  If your property is a listed building you must also apply for listed building consent.  Planning permission may also be needed if your property lies within a conservation area.

Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council, as the local planning authority, is required to maintain a register of planning applications that are received in a valid form.  The submission of a valid application for planning permission requires a completed application form, compliance with national and local information requirements and the correct application fee. 

Once a planning application has been registered as valid the local planning authority should make a decision within the statutory time limit unless a longer period is agreed.  The decision must be taken in accordance with the development plan unless there are material considerations that indicate otherwise.
