All necessary and relevant information is required before you can submit the form, therefore the form will contain all the information needed on first submission. This will make the process quicker because the form will not need to be returned in order to aquire any missing information. Planning Portal guidance notes are available to explain the process of submitting your planning application online in more detail.
