Submitting Planning Applications

Submitting Planning Applications

Methods available for submitting Planning Applications

Barrow Borough Council supports the use of electronic planning applications. We would prefer applicants and agents to submit forms to us electronically. The use of electronic applications does have some benefits for the agent / applicant.

  • Only one set of forms needs completing instead of three.
  • Standard information such as address and telephone number can be stored and brought in automatically to a form.
  • Some guidance and error checking is given when completing forms.
  • A record is kept of previous applications on the planning hub.
  • Enables issues to be resolved quickly.

The Council has a dedicated mailbox for submitting electronic applications - planninghub@barrowbc.gov.uk.

Using this mailbox you can: 

  • submit applications (up to 20MB).   
  • pay online securely via emailed link to applicant or agent.      
  • request editable versions of all forms.       
  • order ordnance survey plans (pdf format).  

If you would like more information or would like to speak to someone about electronic planning applications please contact Pamela Kayes on 01229 876387.

Alternatively applications can be submitted by post or brought in to the Town Hall and submitted.
