This section contains useful information about the application process.

How to apply

The best way to make a planning application is online using the government’s Planning Portal website. Before starting your application it is worth checking our interactive map to ensure your property is within the National Park. You can also seek pre-application advice from us, checking what fees are due and looking through our checklists of required forms. Alternatively, you can submit a paper application using the forms within this section.
