Anyone else having issues with the Planning portal

Recommended Posts

Hi people,


Just wanted to check if anyone else has had issues submitting applications via the planning portal recently?


Ever since they updated the website I’ve had problem after problem and I’ve got 5 applications to put through that I tried doing on Thursday evening first of all and I have put all the applications together and tried sending each one but when it gets to the final submission it just says unable to process and is issue continues contact help desk.


It’s a pain in the backside for me as I have a million things going on at the moment and I thought if I can fire off the applications over the bank holiday then that’s one thing off my plate come Monday.


The apps are over 3 separate councils, South glos, Bristol and North Somerset but non of them can be sent. I’ve tried on my laptop and phone but no luck.


I guess I’ll have to wait till Monday and see if they sort the issue by then but I just wondered if anyone else has had an issue.

I last submitted applications on 22/5/22. There were a few subtle differences if i remember correctly, but no problem getting the two submissions in.

Thanks mate. I had a couple of minor issues before but not this one. It’s all working fine but when you try to finalise the application it just says can’t do it and contact the help desk. I was just wondering if anyone else had tried sending applications over the weekend and had the same issue.
