Planning Reception offers a range of in-person services at North Herts Council's offices (Gernon Road, Letchworth Garden City, SG6 3JF).
We recommend that planning applications and fees are submitted online using the Planning Portal, as hard copy applications and cheques may take longer to process.
Planning Reception is open on an appointment only basis. We continue to register and determine applications as normal.
Staff on Planning Reception are not planners and can only provide basic information.
View planning applications
Details of planning applications are available to view online or on microfiche.
If you would like to view microfiche files, an appointment can be made at a time convenient to you. The Customer Service Centre can also provide copies of plans from microfiche (see charges document below).
Receipt of planning applications
When application documents are hand delivered to Planning Reception, they are only date stamped. The decision as to whether or not the application is valid, is made when received by the Technical Support team in Development Control.
Pay for planning applications
We accept payment:
- online through our Online Payments service
- by cheque payable to North Hertfordshire District Council. Cheques will be date stamped and a receipt can be provided if required.
Receipt of additional documentation/samples
All items received are date stamped and passed to the Technical Support team for processing. Please ensure that the application number or site address is clearly marked.
Provision of planning application information and copying plans and documents
A charge is made for the printing or photocopying of planning information (see charges below). It is our aim to supply requested documents within 48 hours. However, if the planning application was made before 2000 it may take us some time to find it.
Please contact us providing full details of your request together with contact details. We will notify you as soon as the documents are available for collection.

All fees include VAT.
