Planning application forms

Surrey County Council deals with applications for

  • minerals and waste related developments, and
  • developments to its own property, such as schools and libraries (known as Regulation 3).

We have forms for these types of applications below.

Planning applications for building, extending or converting homes, offices or shops are handled by the borough and district councils within Surrey.

GOV.uk provides an introduction to planning permission and building regulations.

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

Your personal data

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. More information is available in our privacy policy.

Planning portal applications

The planning portal can be used for all applications except mineral related applications. Links are provided directly to the PDF forms, which can be completed and sent to us electronically or printed and sent by post. With the exception of oil and gas applications you can use the planning portal online application form to complete your application and pay the planning fee up-front; note that the planning portal may also charge their own fee for this service.
