Where planning permission is needed, you will need to make a formal planning application to the Council.
Where an application relates to residential development the Council supports the use of the Building For Life 12 standard for assessing the quality of schemes. More information on design matters can be found on the Planning Applications and Design page.
You can pay for your application in the following ways:
The Council's preferred card payment method is debit card.
When paying by Internet Banking Service or BACS transfer it is essential that you quote the planning application number or quote 'planning' and provide the site location of the application so that when the payment is received the Council knows what the payment is for.
The Council's bank account details are:
National Westminster Bank Ltd
Account name: West Lancashire Borough Council
Account number: 86998404
Sort code: 01-06-45
The personal data you provide with your application will be used as part of the Council's statutory planning duties in processing planning and related applications and some information will be published. We require your personal information to enable us to determine your application.
