Pre-application advice

Pre-application Advice Service

Our Planning Service is committed to delivering a quality development management service.

We recognise that when making investment decisions, speed and clarity of the planning process is very important. In accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) we place an emphasis on early engagement and aim to work with applications in a positive and proactive way.

We encourage pre-application discussions with applicants, agents, developers and interested parties. The pre-application service for applications is subject to a fee, which will vary depending on the type of application and officer time required.
