Application form information

To start a planning application please visit the Planning Portal. For information before you submit your application, see our planning information page.

For information on the fees for submitting a planning application, please see the Planning Portal fee calculator. For requirements when submitting a planning application please see our local validation checklist.

If your planning application includes the development of a new dwelling (including tourist and Sui Generis accommodation uses) in the borough, it is likely that your application needs to be supported with a shadow habitats regulations assessment (HRA) and a planning contribution of £185.93 per net new house (or equivalent tourist accommodation) to mitigate in-combination effects.

Where the contribution applies, a Section 111 agreement (gi.ui.mediatype.odt) [33KB] (opens new window)  should be completed. Payments should be made when the application is submitted.

Please use one of the following payment methods if you are submitting direct to Great Yarmouth Borough Council:

  • online
  • payment line - telephone 01493 846266 between 9am and 5pm
  • card - make card payments in person at the Town Hall
  • cheque - make payable to 'Great Yarmouth Borough Council'

Please read the Habitats regulations assessment guidance and forms section that provides details of the requirements and how the Borough Council can help applicants meet them.
