Please Note: We do not accept emailed applications. 

The quickest and easiest way to make your planning application is online using the  Planning Portal :

With effect from 1 August 2019, all free applications and all applications where the fee is less than £60 will NOT incur a service charge for submission through the Planning Portal. 

This will include those non-material amendments and householder conditions and will also mean that a number of applications where discounts and exemptions apply – such as for disabilities or charities – will all become exempt from the service charge.  

The service charge on applications £60 and over will be £20.83+ VAT

You can also nominate a third party to pay for applications online by card, this change has been much requested and will improve the efficiency greatly for agents and applicants. 

Submitted applications that require a fee will not be passed to East Devon District Council, until the fee is paid.
