Planning application process

Applying for planning permission

The quickest way to make a planning application is via the Planning Portal.

Choosing the correct application

You must ensure you apply for the correct planning permission, otherwise your application will be invalid. The Planning Portal provides some guidance in selecting the correct application type.

Supporting documents and validation checklists

Each planning application requires a set of supporting documents:

Please note that Ealing Council publish viability statements and information submitted as part of a planning application, without redaction. It is expected that planning agents submit this information in a format suitable for immediate publication, as part of the initial validation process.


The fee we charge is set by the government and depends on the scale and nature of the proposed development.
