Planning Application Form, Ownership Certificate and Notices

Planning Application Form, Ownership Certificate and Notices

When required?

In all cases.

What is required?

Applicants are encouraged to submit applications electronically through iApply or the planning portal.

Applicants must complete an ownership certificate (which is found at the end of the application form) and confirm that an appropriate notice has been served on any other owners (and agricultural tenants). An application is not valid, and therefore cannot be determined by the planning authority, unless the relevant certificate has been completed. It is an offence to complete a false or misleading certificate, either knowingly or recklessly, with a maximum fine, on conviction, of up to £5,000.

Certificate A – Sole Ownership and no agricultural tenants

This should only be completed if the applicant is the sole owner of the land to which the application relates and there are no agricultural tenants.

Certificate B* – Shared Ownership (All other owners/agricultural tenants known)

This should be completed if the applicant is not the sole owner, or if there are agricultural tenants, and the applicant knows the names and addresses of all the other owners and/or agricultural tenants.

An ‘owner’ is anyone with a freehold interest, or leasehold interest (the unexpired term of which is not less than seven years). In the case of development consisting of the winning or working of minerals, a person entitled to an interest in a mineral in the land is also an owner.

Anagricultural tenant’ is a tenant of an agricultural holding, any part of which is comprised in the land to which the application relates.

For any electronically submitted certificate, a typed signature of the applicant’s name is acceptable. Ownership certificates must also be completed for applications for listed building consent, although no agricultural declaration is required.

* A copy of the served notice must be submitted with the application.
