*Please note our new Pre-application charging scheme is being implemented from 1st June 2020. The page below sets out the revised scheme, including the new costs.*
Coronavirus update – Planning Service – 30th March 2020
In line with Government advice and to keep our staff and customers safe, our offices at Eastburn are now closed. However our planning team can still be contacted via email [email protected].
We will continue to process planning applications which have already been submitted. If you are submitting a new application please do so electronically through the planning portal website. We are unlikely to be able to deal efficiently with planning applications received by post or paid for by cheque.
Due to our offices being closed there is likely to be a delay in receiving any letters or documents sent by post. Please send all correspondence to [email protected].
If you have sent anything to the planning department within the last week please can you email [email protected] so that a colleague can contact you.
We are continuing to progress pre-application enquiries but can only accept online BACS payment. We would appreciate the submission of site photographs so that our officers do not need to visit your property.

Northumberland National Park Authority offers a confidential pre-application enquiry service through which we can provide written advice about whether your proposals require planning permission or Listed Building Consent and/or whether the proposal could be supported at the formal application stage.
To submit a pre-application enquiry please complete the relevant application form, either householder or non-householder (See below).
