 User update: Large file downloads

Please note that following changes to the way in which files are presented on this website, some planning applications may now include documents that are larger than 10mb in size.
These larger files are clearly indentified with the words 'Large Document' before the document name.
If you are accessing the site via a broadband internet connection, you should not experience any difficulty in downloading these files.
If you are accessing the site using a slower dial-up internet connection, you may experience some delay while larger files download.  You may wish to consider alternative ways to access these larger files, such as using the free broadband access available at South Gloucestershire libraries.

Most applications require a full planning application. You can also submit an outline planning application to see if a development would be acceptable. Applications are also required for listed buildings, conservation areas, advertisements and for works to trees.
