Pre-application Advice Service

Before applying for pre-application advice, please check whether the work you want to carry out requires planning permission by using the interactive guide on the Planning Portal. If you do not need planning permission then you don't need to apply for pre-application advice.

We encourage you discuss your plans with us before you submit your planning application. This can help you overcome potential difficulties and make sure your application covers everything that's needed.

The time and effort spent in preparing your plans and discussing them with us is more likely to result in a good quality and acceptable development. It will also help us process your scheme more quickly.

We provide pre-application advice at meetings and in writing. The service is available both to applicants and agents.

Advice given through our pre-application advice service will not bind us to making any particular decision. The views expressed are those of the case officer only. The advice will only be applicable while there is no change in policy or other relevant circumstances.
