Landlords in Wales who want to carry out major works to their properties must now visit a new website in order to submit a planning application to the council.

The new ‘Planning Applications Wales’ website went live this week, and it will be the portal for submitting planning applications or associated consents to Local Planning Authorities.

It replaces the Planning Portal, and it has been designed with the view to making it easier for people in Wales to submit a planning application.

The forms that people are required to fill in, in order to submit a planning application, have also been pared down.

Landlords and homeowners alike who want to make a planning application are urged to read the pages on the Welsh Government’s website.

There is also guidance on the website on what types of development can be pursued, without the need to apply for planning permission.
