Pre-application advice

Pre-application Services

We offer written advice about the prospect of proposed development gaining planning permission.

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 submit an application.

Pre-application enquiries are confidential and will not appear online.

Advice will be given by a Planning Officer

Pre-application advice cannot guarantee that a Planning Application is accepted. This is because the planning officer may not be aware of all issues at this stage and won’t be able to consider any comments or responses that are made once an application has been submitted.
