Find out how to submit a planning application. We encourage you to submit your applications online during the COVID-19 outbreak.
We would encourage you to submit your application online via the Planning Portal rather than on paper during the COVID-19 outbreak. This ensures we can process your documents electronically whether we are based at Council offices or working from home. Please also provide an email address on the application form so we are able to correspond electronically rather than by post.
Contributions to Sport and Play in former Tynedale and Wansbeck District Areas
The Community Infrastructure Levy (Amendment) (England (No. 2) Regulations 2019 came into force on 1 September 2019. These regulations make a number of important changes to the operation of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and section 106 planning obligations. These changes included removing altogether the ‘pooling restriction’ which prevented charging authorities from entering into more than five section 106 obligations to fund a single infrastructure project and allowing authorities to charge developers for the costs of monitoring planning obligations.
Following a review of the relevant legislation and policy, Northumberland County Council will be requesting contributions towards Sport and Play infrastructure in the Tynedale and Wansbeck Areas for development of one or more dwellings for any application validated on or after 1st April 2020.
The relevant documents and guidance are available to view on our website but you will be contacted by the case officer if this applies to your planning application.
