Planning Information and Links
In addition to local planning information and policies on Mole Valley District Council's (MVDC's) website, further information and advice, including National policies, can be found via links to external web sites on this page.
The Planning Portal Website
The Planning Portal is the UK Government's online planning and building regulations resource web site. It explains how the planning system plays an important role in helping to protect the environment in both towns and the countryside, and provides the tools to explain general planning rules and building regulations. It also provides:
- Guidance about the regulations regarding any building work you perform around your house
- Interactive house guides to learn about planning and building regulations
- Help to apply for planning permission
- Help to appeal against a planning decision
Choosing an Architect
Mole Valley District Council can't recommend architects. However, by law, anyone who calls themselves an architect must be trained, qualified and registered with the Architects Registration Board (ARB). To help you choose, try talking to other people who have employed the services of an architect, or look in paper or online directories of trade's people. The ARB have an online register of qualified architects, or phone 0800 389 6221. More information can be found in the links on this page.

MVDC is unable to assist in boundary, rights of way, rights of access or land ownership issues.
In England and Wales, the Land Registry registers title to land, and record dealings (e.g. sales and mortgages) with registered land. The Land Registry contact details for the Mole Valley District are:
