Pre-Application Advice

During the current issues around Covid-19 the Planning and Building Control Service will be having to adapt the service it can provide. 

Further information on what services we are able to offer are available on our Planning and Building Control page

Pre-Application Advice Service

Please note we do not provide advice on whether planning permission is required (i.e. whether 'development' is permitted development or not), it is up to you to satisfy yourself in this regard - please refer to our web page:  Do I Need Planning Permission?.

However, If you are considering making either a planning application or a Listed Building Consent Application, we are able to provide you with assistance in obtaining an informal planning opinion on your proposal.

This can be very useful as we can identify any issues that may affect the outcome of your application and therefore may necessitate changes to your proposals before they are formally submitted as an application. We can furthermore identify schemes that have little or no chance of success.

Applications for Pre-Application Advice will only be accepted online using the appropriate form.

We will endeavour to provide advice within 28 days.  However, we are only able to provide limited free pre-application advice at this time and it may take longer to provide a response to you especially for Major Planning Applications
