Further Information

Government guidance in the form of "The Validation of Planning Applications: A guide for local planning authorities" is also available online via theDCLG website.

For Planning Application Forms (1APP Forms) visit thePlanning Portal website and select Breckland in the drop down list.

You can use the Planning Portal's'Buy a Plan' service to ensure that you meet our requirements, whether you are a planning professional or first-time applicant.

The Planning Portal has also produced APlanning Portal Best Practice Guide - what to submit which you may find useful.

The Council has also produced the attached Icon for pdf Guidance Note [919.53KB] to assist you in submitting applications.  The guidance and documents are specific to the most common types of application and although these documents are not required to validate your planning application, if you submit these relevant documents, as set out it the guidance note, then it is likely to speed up the course of your application and may avoid an unnecessary refusal of planning permission.
