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

There are two ways you can submit a planning application, online or using paper forms

Apply online

The quickest and easiest method of submitting a planning application is online through the Planning Portal. You can access 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. Please note, however, that the Planning Portal charges an administration fee for applications submitted through its website.  

Apply by post / paper

You can access all planning application forms through the Planning Portal. 

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

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