How do I find out whether I need Planning Permission?
You have 3 options to help determine whether or not you require Planning Permission:-
1) You can review the National Planning guidance on the Planning Portal website (www.planningportal.gov.uk) via the Interactive House (free advice service). You will also find a list of common projects on this page; some have mini guides and case studies which you may find useful to review.
2)You can complete our Planning Enquiry Form for Householder Developments. We will confirm in writing based on what you have told us, whether or not you require Planning Permission (A £25 charge is applied for this service).
3) You can complete a Certificate of Lawful Development for a Proposed Use, which provides formal confirmation of the requirement for permission. (A National Fee of £75 is applied for this service).
Access to our online mapping facility to check whether a property is within a Conservation Area, Article 4 Area, a Listed Building, view live planning applications or refer to planning history for an address.

Saved Local Plan Policies July 2009
The Council’s adopted local plan, part of the development plan covering East Staffordshire, and the basis for determining all planning applications received by the authority, was adopted on 20th July 2006. When adopted, the plan was ‘saved’ for three years under the transitional arrangements set out in the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004. The Council has now received permission from the Secretary of State to retain those policies that are still relevant, are in accordance with current national, regional and structure plan saved policies and are locally specific. The policies listed for retention have met the criteria set out in the Department for Communities and Local Government’s Protocol and are available to view from the General Planning Documents list
