Welcome to the Stockport Planning Handbook, an independently produced handbook that is distributed to all new planning applicants. This handbook explains then ins and outs of the planning application process in Stockport, covering all aspects of the planning application process from submitting your application all the way to it being approved or denied. We hope that it will be a reliable source of information for you as you embark upon your project. Our handbook contains information of local companies which specialise in all relevant planning and building services. No matter whether you are looking for a domestic, commercial or industrial service, you will be able to find all required trades to complete your development here in our handbook.

The planning regulations and permissions are always changing as local and government policy evolves. While all the advice we have given in the Planning Handbook is applicable nationally, councils often differ in how they process planning applications. We hope that you find the Planning Handbook helpful for your planning and we wish you the very best of luck with your project!
