Information needed for a planning application
The information you will usually be asked for is as follows:
- plans to show what the building will look like
- plans to show what it will be built from and how
- plans to show where will it be positioned on site/site plan
- location plan
- existing and proposed floor plan
- existing and proposed sections and elevations
Information required for householders
To help householders submit applications to improve their homes, we have a separate guidance note for domestic alterations.
The practice note below sets out in detail the type and quality of information normally required as part of a planning application for householders and explains terms such as:
- location plan
- site plan
P2 Householder application form
Practice Note 11A - Information needed for householder application
Information required for all other applications
For all other applications, the level of information required will vary depending on the type of proposal. The practice note below sets out the type or quality of information required.
P1 Non-Householder application form
Practice Note 11 - Information needed for non-householder application
Large or major schemes must be accompanied by further information, such as:
- street elevations (showing the relative heights and design of adjoining buildings)
- photo montages
- design statement
- models may be helpful to illustrate these schemes
A check list has been developed to assist you in what information should be provided as required by certain policies of the Island Plan.
If your scheme involves the demolition of all or part of a building, you should include an explanation of how you intend to dispose of the rubble, or spoil.
If you need guidance on this, the waste management policies in the Island Plan will help you.

Consideration of building bye laws
If an application for detailed planning permission is submitted separately from a building application, we strongly advise you to take into account the requirements of the building bye laws at the planning stage.
This will minimise the risk of having to submit a revised planning application at a later date once the requirements of the building bye laws are addressed. Such changes might not be acceptable in planning terms.
