The householder application is the standard full planning application that is submitted to the Council where the developer seeks full planning permission for a development related to the dwelling-house. This could include an extension, garage, Velux windows, driveway, etc. For a planning application to be validated you must submit elevation plans and a site location plan that is to scale (such as 1:100 or 1:50), sometimes the Council will require further information, but this is dependent on individual applications. You can submit the application on “Planning Applications Wales” It should be noted that even if you believe the development to be permitted development, this can still be submitted as a full planning application. Your proposed development will be assessed by local and national planning policies as well as supplementary planning guidance. The planning officer will usually make an officer recommendation of approval or refusal and then a delegated decision will typically be made by principal officers. In some instances, if development is controversial or the applicant is a member of the Council, the application could be determined by the planning committee.
