These forms may take a moment to load. Please contact us if you have any problems.

Once your form has been submitted you will receive a receipt and our Validation Team will receive the completed form and payment details.

We are looking to develop forms for other types of development in the future; for the time being please apply for all other types of developments via the Planning Portal as detailed below.

Background material

We always recommend getting pre-application advice before incurring any costs. We can advise if your project needs permission/consent, if it is likely to be supported in principle and what type of information you are likely to be asked for.

Applying for all other planning permissions online

You can either make your own planning application or hire a planning agent to work on your behalf.

The easiest way to apply for other types of planning permission and/or listed building consent is to do it online using the "Planning Portal".

You will be able to attach electronic versions of plans and drawings, if required.

There is an added advantage of an automatic check to ensure (as far as possible) that your application contains all the necessary information and accompanying documents.

Apply for planning permission using the Planning Portal

We do not service the Planning Portal. If you encounter an issue submitting an application, phone the Planning Portal Helpdesk on 0333 3234589 or email the Planning Portal Helpdesk. Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils are not responsible for any additional charges you may incur whilst using this website.
