Make a planning application
This step-by-step will help you find out if you need planning permission for changes to your home or property, such as home improvements or extensions. It will also take you through the application process.
If you’re a developer, it will take you through the process for applying for planning permission for developments and new builds.
Not all developments need planning permission. You can use Planning Portal to find out whether you need to apply.
To get planning permission, you should make sure your plans and designs are in keeping with local planning policy.
Our planning policies will help you find opportunities for development and make successful plans that fit the vision for Hackney.
We recommend that you get advice from us or another professional about your proposals.
Planning performance agreements
To ensure that the schemes are of the highest quality and deliver the best planning outcomes for Hackney, we can work with developers and applicants from project inception, to planning decisions being determined and all associated conditions discharged.
You can submit your planning application online or send it by post.
