Apply for planning permission

What happens next?

When we receive an application, a Planning Officer will check if anything is missing. If so, they will write to the agent or applicant explaining what is required.

Once we have all the correct information, the application will be registered. From registration, applications normally take a maximum of eight weeks to be determined, with the exception of:

  • major applications which take a maximum of 13 weeks
  • Householder Prior Notification (Larger Home Extensions) applications which take a maximum of 42 days.

If we need to extend these time limits for any reason, the Case Officer will let you know.

A Decision Notice will be sent to the agent or applicant with the outcome of your application.

You may also track your application via Runnymede Interactive Maps or via the Council's planning application search
