Changes to Planning Portal Application forms

Find out about the changes to planning application forms in Hillingdon.

The Greater London Authority led a project which involved changes to the Planning Portal's existing online application forms for submission to London boroughs. This included the addition of new questions and changes to a number of existing questions. This enables planning authorities in London and the wider public to access information and data about planning proposals in a more effective way. 

All London planning authorities went live with the new 1APP forms on 16 November 2020.

There are a number of changes to how anyone submitting a planning application will interact with the planning system, including a number of new questions on the 1APP planning application form. The data collected will also be available to you through the London Planning Datahub on GLA's website, in due course. You can view the data relating to all other schemes in London, identify patterns and assess how it impacts your scheme. 

The industry has been working towards better planning and development data for a long time, a concept reinforced by the Planning White Paper, because this is the biggest barrier to innovation in the proptech and plantech sectors. 

Funded by the Local Digital Fund, this is a collaborative project between all of the boroughs, the Mayor of London and back office system providers. It will create a step change in how development data provides insight into the future of our cities.
