Planning application forms

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

Surrey district and borough councils deal with planning applications for building, extending or converting homes, offices or shops. GOV.uk provides an introduction to planning permission and building regulations.

We have a number of forms for the different types of applications we deal with, which are available below to view and download.

All applications for minerals-related development, including Section 73 applications (removal and variation of conditions) and Details Pursuant applications (approval of conditions) should be submitted through the form available below.

Planning applications for Regulation 3 and Waste development can be submitted to Surrey County Council directly or through the Planning Portal. Please be aware we do not accept any amendments or amplifying documents to support your application through the portal following your initial submission, these should be provided electronically via email or posted to the team, contact details available below.

To help you apply for planning permission we have produced a local list with guidance for making a planning application.

If you are in any doubt about which form to use, please contact our Technical Support Team on 020 8541 9897 or email us at: mwcd@surreycc.gov.uk

Planning is a statutory function and any information is held on the lawful basis of public task (in accordance with the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, as amended, related orders and regulations). If you have submitted a planning application to Surrey County Council or made a comment on a planning application, your name, address and contact details will be saved in our files, electronic and paper. We do this so we can notify you of amendments to the proposal, the outcome of the application, if an appeal is lodged against the application, and subsequent applications in respect of the site. This information will be retained indefinitely as part of the background information on which the planning decision has been based. Additionally, all submissions will be sent to the relevant Borough or District Council to be placed on the Planning Register as this is their responsibility. In the event of an appeal or a 'call-in' by the Secretary of State, your submissions may be copied to the Planning Inspectorate or the National Planning Casework Unit.
