Planning advice

Please contact this office if you are submitting a planning application for the first time or need any help and advice to guide you through the planning process. We positively encourage pre-application discussions.

Discussions with Members of the Planning Committee

For certain types of application there is the opportunity to discuss your proposals with Members of the Planning Committee. The following types of application are considered appropriate for Pre-application meetings with the Members of the Planning Committee.

  • major applications (as defined in NI157a) - generally, 10 or more houses, 1000 sq m or more of floorspace, sites of 0.5 ha or 1ha or more
  • schemes in conservation areas which would have a significant  impact on the character and appearance of the area
  • schemes affecting listed buildings
  • schemes which Members have asked to be presented eg following a refusal of an application by Committee
  • repeat visits only when specifically requested by Members at a previous pre-app meeting or as identified by the applicant as  necessary prior to the first pre-app meeting
  • in exceptional circumstances only, other schemes not falling into the above at the discretion of the Chair.

There is a fee for this service. Please telephone 01482 300 300 for the current fees.

Pre application discussions

Pre application discussions can save time and money and can help to ensure that your application moves through the planning process more easily and with more chance of success.

Submitting a planning application

More information and guidance is available on the planning forms page.

Forms, plans and maps need to be provided or completed in support of an application for planning permission. Most of the mandatory forms can be downloaded from this site for printing and filling in. Alternatively copies of forms and planning advice are obtainable from planning reception during normal office hours.

A complete planning application should include the following:

  • a completed copy of the application form (please ensure that you have signed and dated where necessary). Photocopies are acceptable Buy online
  • a completed Certificate Under Article 7, which is a certificate of ownership 
  • a copy of a location plan of the site, with a red line showing the proposed area. Planning maps may be purchased online from the National Map Centre
  • 1 copy of each drawing. All plans and drawings should include the following information: the scale of the drawing, the original paper size, key dimensions and a scale bar indicating a minimum of 0-10 metres
  • the necessary planning fee (please contact the office if you have problems calculating your fee)

Applications for Listed Building consent, and consent to display an advertisement, have different requirements.

If an application is not valid you will be contacted by letter or email which will ask for the missing information.

We will try to reach a decision inside the national target period, which is normally eight weeks. Your co-operation in providing the correct information at the time of submission will help us to speed up this process.

Copies of forms for planning applications etc can be obtained from planning reception at Kingston House or can be downloaded from planning forms.

Developer's guide

What to do when you receive your planning decision - planning conditions

A planning application may either be allowed, allowed subject to conditions, or refused. If it is allowed subject to conditions the permission does not come into force until all those conditions have been satisfied. The condition will specify what is required and when by.

Where details are required to be submitted for approval this requires a further fee which is payable before the request can be dealt with. For householder applications (such as house extensions) the fee is £25, and for all other developments the fee is £85 (no fee payable for listed building consent conditions).

Each request can include more than one condition. If confirmation that all conditions have been complied with on a completed development is required the same procedure and fees apply.

Objecting to and commenting on a planning application

A major part of the planning process is the involvement of the public. We will notify neighbours of any planning application and/or post a site notice. In some cases notices are also placed in the local press (Hull Daily Mail).

Your comments on planning and related applications are welcomed, and may influence the eventual decision.

Many planning applications can be dealt with by officers. If you object to a proposal and you wish to be heard by the Planning Committee you will need to contact a local councillor, who will request that the matter is reported to the Committee. It is important that you do this quickly as the decision may be made by officers soon after the expiry of the consultation period.
