Planning Authorities of England, Scotland and Wales

Find your Planning Authority

In the following list, we have sought to bring together web addresses for every planning authority dealing with day-to-day development management in England, Wales and Scotland.

There are two main exceptions.

Firstly, for applications in England concerning minerals or waste, the planning authority you need may not be one of those authorities listed below, but instead may be a county council. However, the planning authorities listed below will be able to advise you how to proceed in such circumstances.

Secondly, special arrangements may apply in areas which have been designated as Enterprise Zones or which have other special administrative arrangements. It is best to enquire locally about these.

Many different kinds of local authorities have planning responsibilities and they organise their websites in many different ways. In England especially, the structure of local government is something of a patchwork, with several different kinds of authority providing planning services. This is reflected in websites: for example, the websites for district councils may sometimes be reached through, or be part of, the county’s website.

On many councils’ websites, Planning is prominent on the council’s home page. In others, it may be found in areas of the website such as residents’ services, environment or business. To make life easier, we’ve tried to find the web address which will be most useful when you’re trying to find out about planning policies and procedures. This is usually a Planning ‘home page’; it will often offer a link to building control and sometimes there will be links to other relevant topics such as land charges.

Finally, councils’ websites change quite frequently and although we’ve checked the sites carefully, we can’t be certain that they will remain unaltered. Indeed, one or two were in the process of redesign when we complied the list.

Finally, remember if you're needing a guaranteed compliant, fully licenced planning map for your planning application then start your search here. Our planning maps are also some of the least costly, with an extra 10% discount should you purchase two scales (normally a block plan and location plan.
