Submit a planning application

Before submitting your application, please ensure you have read "Do I need planning permission?" first.

There are two ways you can submit a planning application:

Apply online

The quickest and easiest method of submitting a planning application is online via the Planning Portal.  

The portal enables you to identify the correct form and complete it online, automatically calculate the planning fee, make your payment and attach drawings.  

Apply by post / paper

You will need to select and print the correct form, in exceptional circumstances we will send in the post to you.  

Once completed, please send the forms, plans and any other appropriate documents back to us.  

You can pay the fee by enclosing a cheque made payable to 'Blackpool Council', by telephone or via the council's website where you can pay online using a debit or credit card.
