Apply online through the Planning Portal
If you have received planning permission which includes conditions requiring certain matters to be agreed with the council then you will need to apply to the council to discharge those conditions.
In some instances this will need to be done before you start what you have permission for. If you have any queries about when you need to apply please use our enquiry form.
Applications to discharge planning conditions must clearly identify the relevant permission and the number(s) of the condition(s) concerned.

You can apply online through the Planning Portal.
Please check the standards for online submissions before submitting documents and drawings electronically. This includes the required files sizes and format. Please make sure you go through the checklist before sending your application - most delays are caused by simple mistakes.
