Earlier waste collections 11 and 12 August 2022

Your waste and recycling collections will start an hour earlier from 6am on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 August 2022. This is to allow our crews to work in lower temperatures earlier in the day. Please have your waste out at 6am. Collection times throughout the day may change as a result.

Delays in responding

Due to limited resources within the Planning and Building Control Business Support Team at this time, there is likely to be a delay in responding to communications regarding copies of historical documents or information.

Apply for planning permission

When you are sure that you need planning permission you can apply online via the Planning Portal.

Along with the appropriate form and fee your application will usually include documents such as plans, a location map and statements describing aspects of the application. These will vary depending on the details and scale of the proposals.

Apply for planning permission

A checklist has been produced for each application type setting out both national and local validation requirements. The checklists can be viewed next to the relevant application form on our application forms and validation checklists page.

Once received, the application is checked by a planning officer to make sure we have everything we need to assess it. If anything is missing, we will either telephone you or write to the applicant (or the applicant's representative) explaining what else is required, normally within five days of receiving the application. If you include an email address on your application form we can also email you.

Apply by application form 

You can also submit your application to us in paper form by post to ‘Planning, London Borough of Havering, Town Hall, Main Road, Romford RM1 3BB'.
