Making a planning application
You have considered the issues which affect the design process and taken all the expert advice - you, or your agent, are ready to submit your planning application.
The application process
The attached pdf diagram gives you an idea about the different stages the application will go through before the council make a decision on your application.
How do I apply for planning permission?
Planning permission is obtained from the Local Planning Authority by completing the necessary application forms. It is important to make sure that you complete your planning application correctly because if the detailed information on the forms is not right then we cannot start the process and will delay a decision.
The following checklist will help:
- obtain the application forms and read the ‘Isle of Anglesey Planning Application Guidance Notes’
- fully complete the relevant parts of the forms and remember to sign and date them.
- submit the correct number and type of supporting plans. Each application should be accompanied by a site plan at not less than 1:2500 scale and detailed plans, sections and elevations, where relevant.
- complete a Design and Access Statement
- pay the appropriate fee (please see below). If you have any doubt about the correct fee please contact the department as no action can be taken on your application until the correct fee has been received. The Planning Portal has an interactive fee calculator to further assist you with determining the correct fee.
You can also apply for planning permission online via the Planning Portal. This is not only quicker for yourself, but will also be cheaper as you will not need to supply multiple copies of your plans and forms. You will also benefit from having an audit trail of the date you submitted your application as the details will be saved by the Planning Portal.
Certificates which confirm ownership details and whether the site is part of an agricultural holding need to be submitted.
After submitting a valid application we will acknowledge it’s receipt and issue you with an unique reference number.
Your application will be given to a case officer who will be responsible for dealing with your application. His/Her identity will be highlighted on the acknowledgement letter. You may contact this officer to discuss the progress of your application.
How we use your personal information
The council must notify, in writing, occupiers of any properties which may be affected by your proposal. This will include your next door neighbours and may also include occupiers of properties opposite or to the rear of your property.
Planning application forms are public documents and all information contained on them (including personal data such as your name and address) will be available for public inspection both in the council’s offices and on this website. Disclosure of personal data may therefore be made to any person or organisation having access to the internet worldwide. Information may be disclosed to other council departments and other relevant agencies according to the council’s registration under the Data Protection Act 1998.
Data Protection Act 1998: The Isle of Anglesey County Council is the Data Controller for the purposes of the act.
