Planning Advice and Queries

Planning Advice and Queries

We are unable to offer planning advice over the telephone or via email.

If your query relates to whether you require planning permission, you can check the advice on a range of the most common projects on the Planning Portal.

It is your responsibility to find out whether you need planning permission before you make improvements or changes to a property. If you go ahead without permission, you may end up having to put things back to how they were.

Set out below is a list of resources you might find useful in helping you to answer your questions.
