The Planning Portal is the home of planning and building regulations information and the national application service for England and Wales.
Our aim is to provide answers, services and information to anyone involved in the planning process, from home owners and businesses to planning professionals and government officials.
We deliver this by working in partnership with every local authority in England and Wales.
Visit the Planning Portal to...
- Use the interactive house to find out if your project needs building regulations approval
- Apply for building control approval
- Apply for planning permission
- Access Approved Documents
- Get the latest planning and building news
