The Planning Portal is a national website for all planning permissions and information in England and Wales. The information and services it offers are designed for home owners, businesses, planning professionals and Government officials. 

Cardiff Council is fully integrated with the Planning Portal.

On the Planning Portal website you can:

  • apply for planning permission
  • learn about the planning system
  • find out about a development
  • appeal against a planning decision
  • research the latest government policy
  • buy site location plans
  • read and download help guides, forms and other documents 


Whenever you are using the Planning Portal website make sure you have selected the Welsh flag on the top right of the pages, as shown in this image, so that the information and regulations you are reading are correct for Wales.
