What Do I Need To Provide

Householder planning applications must be accompanied by:

  • A completed and signed application form
  • a scaled location plan clearly identifying your site (outlined in red)
  • a block plan (scale 1:500) showing any extensions including critical dimensions
  • any other relevant plans or drawings including critical dimensions 
  • design and access statement (if within a conservation area) - see Guidance on Design and Access Statements


Ordnance survey plans for this purpose are available from the Rushcliffe Customer Service Centre for a Ordnance Survey fees. Plans are also available to purchase online at


For other types of applications, the items above are required, with some exceptions:

  • Advertisement consent: does not require a design and access statement
  • Change of use application: does not require a design and access statement
  • Extensions to business premises: a design and access statement is required for all applications
  • Listed building consent applications: a design and access statement is required for all applications.
  • Non-Material Amendment applications: the application form and amended plan is required, with the proposed amendment clearly highlighted or otherwise marked on the plan
  • Discharge of Conditions: for householder applications the application form and any associated documents is required


From 31 January 2024 we are using the Local Scheme of Validation as our application requirements. Applications made that do not meet these requirements will not be processed until all of the application requirements are met. See documents below.


If your application is accompanied by correspondence or documentation which contains or includes information of a personal nature or is commercially sensitive or confidential, this should be marked accordingly, e.g. ‘this document contains confidential information’. Ideally, confidential or sensitive information should be submitted as a separate document.
