Planning Application Forms and Fees

This page contains information about completing a Planning Application, with links to most of the current forms.

Full details of Planning Application fees are available on the Planning Portal (see 'Internet Links').

Applying for Planning Permission

MVDC encourages electronic applications via the Planning Portal, the UK's planning and building regulations website. MVDC also accepts applications made by completing a form, available by using the links below, and returning it by email to: planning@molevalley.gov.uk or by post to: Planning Department, Mole Valley District Council, Pippbrook, Dorking, RH4 1SJ. To assist in completing the forms, links to the associated validation checklists and guidance notes are also provided.

All applications must include copies of a location plan based on an up-to-date map at a standard metric scale. The application site should be edged clearly with a red line. Location and Block Plans must not be a Land Registry document, or include data from the Surrey County Council Interactive Map. More information on requirements can be found by visiting the links 'Maps, Plans & Planning Applications: What to Submit' and 'Guidance Notes: Making a planning application online' (see 'Internet Links'). You can purchase site location plans for anywhere in the country through the Planning Portal's accredited supplier (see 'Internet Links').

Planning Application Fees

The planning fees can be calculated using the Planning Portal's Fee Calculator (see 'Internet Links') or downloaded from the Planning Portal website (see 'Planning Application Fees from 17/01/18 (pdf)' under 'Internet Links'). If you are uncertain how the scale of fees applies to your proposal, please call 01306 885001 or email planning@molevalley.gov.uk.

Ownership of Land

If you do not own the site, or your proposed development will encroach on to or over land you do not own, you must complete Certificate B (included in the application form). Notice No.1 should also be completed and given to the owner of the site to inform them of the application. Notice No. 2 is for publication in a local newspaper. These forms can be completed online, or downloaded and printed using the links specific to your application in the table below.

Local Validation Checklist

The MVDC Planning Application Local Validation Checklist was updated in November 2016 to include the requirement for the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) (see 'Downloads'). The document details the national and local information requirements when making a planning application to MVDC. Applications that do not include all of the correct information cannot be validated, which can result in delays to you and your development.

CIL Forms

The Community Infrastructure Levy (Amendment) Regulations 2019 came into effect on 1st September 2019, and many of the CIL forms changed. Some form numbers changed and some new forms were introduced. Please ensure that you use the updated forms, which are labelled with '2019' at the bottom right of each page.

Most planning applications to MVDC require a 'CIL Additional Information' form to be submitted before validation. This, and other CIL forms that may be required later during the planning process, can be downloaded below.
