Application Forms and Fees
Black Country Validation Checklist
Following consultation on a new joint validation checklist covering the Black Country earlier this year, we are going live with a new document titled 'What do I need to submit a planning application?'. This replaces our previous local validation checklist and all planning applications received on or after the 1st September 2012 will need to take account of the revised information requirements. You can view the document and find out more in the link below:

You can download, print out and submit by post
You will be asked to specify the local planning authority to which the application will be sent (alternatively you can search using the site address) and which application type you require (with optional help in selecting the application type).
The system will then provide you with the correct form and associated help text as well as a general guidance note on making the application.
Please note that these forms are designed to be printed out and completed by hand. If you want to complete a form on the computer and then print it out, you are advised to use our online application service to complete the form and then the ‘Print Entire Application’ function.
