Planning Applications Wales, a new government website intended to simplifying the planning process, is now live.

The website replaces the previous Planning Portal as a way of submitting applications to Local Planning Authorities in Wales.

Designers of the platform say the website should streamline the system, making it quicker and easier for prospective self-builders to use.

Planning Portal user account details will continue to work on the new service and applications already created in draft on the Planning Portal will be available to edit and submit.

To make a planning application, submit your project details through the new Welsh online service.

Cabinet Secretary for Energy, Planning and Rural Affairs Lesley Griffiths commented: “Our new website will be the place people will need to go to submit their planning applications from today.

“In designing the new website, we’ve made sure the service meets the needs of Welsh users. The new website will also make it quicker and simpler for anyone wanting to submit a planning application.”
