We offer 'pre-application' planning advice to give you informal guidance on the content and presentation of your proposal before you submit a planning application.
Our pre-application advice
Our guidance is informal and given without prejudice, but helps to identify any issues relevant to your development, so you can consider them before you finalise your proposals and submit a planning application.
This approach gives you the opportunity to improve your submission and speed up the process of a planning decision.
Any pre-application correspondence will be made available for public inspection under the Freedom of Information Act or Environmental Information Regulations, unless the information is deemed exempt.
