Do I need planning permission

How to apply for pre-application advice

Planning Advice

If you want to check whether you are likely to get planning permission before you formally submit your application to us, you can apply for pre-application advice.

Pre-application advice can help speed up the planning process as any potential problems can be highlighted before you apply for Planning Permission. Advice is confidential and will not appear online.

Pre-application advice cannot guarantee the approval of any subsequent Planning Application, but will guide you through the elements to consider in your submission.


Planning History searches

A Planning History is a list of Planning Applications, Consents and Decisions that relate to a specific property or land.

Sometimes you may need to know whether a property has a planning history, for example, when you are seeking to purchase a property, prior to submitting a full Local Land Charges Search
