Completing the form

You should complete every question within the form. If a question doesn't seem relevant to your proposal, enter "N/A" – not applicable – on the form.

Plans and documents are uploaded as attachments to the application when you apply online, which makes the process much simpler. If you send us a printed application, you must include one copy of the completed application form and a copy of all the supporting plans and documents.
