Making a planning application

A guide for making planning applications is available from the downloadable documents box. Supplementary guidance is available in relation to trees and highway matters. A guide is also available in relation to the different types of planning applications that can be submitted. These should be referred to prior to submitting an application

Applications for planning approval should be made by completion of the relevant application form – all are available as downloadable documents or applications can be made using our online service. In either case your submission must be supported by all necessary plans and supporting documentation and, where required, the relevant fee at the bottom of the Application forms page.

Should you opt to use the electronic application service, a single paper copy of your submission must continue to be submitted for the benefit of ALL Local Authorities with exception to applications within the Parishes of Andreas, Douglas, Garff, Malew, Onchan and Port Erin, wherein each Authority is content to consider the submission in an electronic form

If the building is registered, an application for Registered Building Consent must also be made. Please see our Registered Buildings page for further information.

If you require a base map to enable you to draw your location and site plans, these can be obtained from the Department of Infrastructure which is the custodian for the Island maps (not Ordnance Survey). More information.
