Making a planning application

District and borough councils deal with planning applications for building, extending or converting homes, offices or shops.

Surrey County Council deals with applications for minerals or waste-related developments, and for developments to its own property, such as schools and libraries.

We encourage all applicants to enter into pre-application discussions prior to making an application. Please see the link at the bottom of the page to pre-application discussions for planning applications, where you can view our minerals and waste pre-application planning advice and download a pre-application request form.

To make a planning application for minerals, waste or county council development you will need to complete and submit the appropriate form. Application forms are available to download or submit online following the link below. At present you will not be able to submit the statements, plans or drawings etc related to minerals applications online. Submissions of applications and accompanying documents can only be accepted by email, on the planning portal or by DVD. Submissions by memory stick or the cloud can not be accepted.

We strongly recommend that you use our Local List for the validation of all county matter planning applications and guidance to help applicants prior to submitting an application. This will enable you to make sure you have submitted all the information needed for us to consider your application.
