Pre-application discussions are useful in identifying planning issues early on in the development process.
Often this leads to reduced costs later on by avoiding unacceptable submissions.
We offer different types of advice depending upon the nature of your proposal. View advice available for more information.
Our Pre-application advice document shows:
- the fee for each type of advice we provide
- how to request advice
We are currently unable to meet our published timescales for pre-application advice where a face to face meeting and/or a written response will be sent. This does not affect face to face meetings with our duty planner. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. If you still wish to obtain our advice on your project, please email email@example.com with the following information:
- Your contact details
- The site address
- A description of the proposals so that we can understand the nature of the development
Upon receipt, the Planning Officer allocated to deal with your enquiry will contact you and agree upfront a timeframe for response. If you are happy with this timescale, you will be asked to pay the fee and submit full details of the proposals, including drawings, within 5 working days. The agreed timeframe for response will begin once the fee has been paid and the drawings received. Where the fee is paid and the drawings submitted after 5 working days, we reserve the right to review our time frame for response.
