Planning application forms and guidance notes

Planning Forms and Fees including Prior Notification and High Hedge Forms

Introduction
A series of forms for making planning applications, prior notifications and high hedge complaints have been produced by the government and are hosted on the National Planning Portal.

You are strongly encouraged to submit your application online via the Portal. You can however make a paper application by downloading the relevant form from our website using the links set out below.

If you make a paper application, only two copies of the drawings, forms, certificates and supporting documents are required. Further advice that you are strongly encouraged to read on making a planning application is available on the Portal. For further information and examples of plans see Plans & other documents needed to accompany your planning application.

Before making an application you are strongly advised to seek pre application advice. This will identify what the Officer level views are on what you propose and what information will be required to support any application. Making such an approach may well save time and money.

Please note we are not able to offer informal advice as to the need for planning permission. If you want the Council to advise as to whether you require permission you will need to submit a formal Certificate of Lawfulness Application via the Portal or using the relevant form below.

New Forest District Council 1APP Requirements
The New Forest District Council Local Requirements were reviewed and adopted in July 2013 and are available at adobe icon Committee Report 10 July 2013 [102kb]  and adobe icon 1APP B Report Planning Development Control Committee 10 July 2013 [102kb] and adobe icon 1 APP C Report and Appendices 1 & 2 from 8 May 2013 Planning & Development Control Committee [77kb]. In order to reflect government advice and ensure a proportionate response when registering applications these local requirements were significantly reduced as they did not universally apply to particular application types. However this does mean that an applicant/agent has to consider what specific information will be required, and if any such information is identified at registration the Council will advise accordingly. This will not stall registration but if the identified information is not provided it may prejudice a favourable recommendation. The Local Requirements were reviewed again in December 2014 to support the Council's implementation of the Community Infrastructure Levy in April 2015 and are available at adobe icon Committee Report 10 December 2014. [604kb] A list of other commonly required supporting information is available.


Consultation  - revised 1 APP

The Planning Development Control Committee on 12 October 2016 agreed  to proposed revised 1 APP Local Requirements be published for consultation with regular planning agents, internal and external consultees and Town/Parish Councils. This consultation ran for a 6 week period from 13 October 2016. The report and details are as set out in the spread sheet and text attached as Appendix 2 to this report which can be viewed on the following link adobe icon Proposed New Forest District Council revised 1APP (planning application) local requirements [153kb]

Comments following consultation on the proposed revised New Forest District Council Revised 1APP (Planning Application) Local Requirements were considered and agreed by the Planning Development Control Committee on 14 December 2016. These revised requirements are therefore now adopted as the FINAL 1APP Revised List. Please see the December Report and details as set out in  Appendix 2 [52kb] and adobe icon Appendix 3 1APP Review - Affordable housing viability pro forma [76kb] , together with the additional requirements for submission of highways information as referred to in the minutes of the meeting


The Planning Forms
Please click on the relevant heading below for 1APP forms, the 1APP local planning application checklist and guidance notes.

Please note that the National Planning Portal Guidance Notes in relation to the red line plan may not be applicable in all cases,  for example there may be no need to include the access to the public highway if no development is taking place on the access. The normal rule is that the red line should include all land where development (requiring planning permission) is actually taking place.
