Is Planning Permission Required?

Advice on planning permission is available on the Government’s website Planning Portal – Permission and it provides a very useful interactive guide for householders requiring advice on the need for planning permission for a proposal.

Duty Planning Officer

The council provides a duty officer service aimed at providing customers with general planning advice by phone or in person. The service is available between 8:30am and 12pm, Monday to Friday, except on public holidays and training days (advance notice will be given on the website when the service is unavailable). The duty officer can be contacted either by telephone on 0300 303 8588 or in person at the Council Offices, Cannards Grave Road, Shepton Mallet, BA4 5BT. The aim of the duty officer service is to assist with general planning enquiries such as:

  •           The process of applying for planning permission.
  •           The information that is required with planning applications.
  •           Explanation or interpretation of planning policies.

You may enquire whether planning permission is required although it is not possible to confirm that a proposal does not need permission. For further information, please visit the Is Planning Permission Required? page on the website.

If you would like to establish the likelihood of planning permission being granted for your proposals, you will need to complete the form in accordance with our Pre-Application Service.

Householder development enquires only

For enquires relating to a “Householder” development, an informal opinion regarding the need for planning permission can be obtained verbally by accessing the Duty Planner service or in writing by completing the word icon Is Planning Permission Required Form [165kb] and posting it to the address shown or emailing it to We aim to respond to requests for written advice within 21 days. Please note that informal advice is at officer level only and is not a formal determination under section 192 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
