Planning pre-application advice

Due to an increase in application submissions and a lack of resources, the provision of pre-application advice is now only available for major development. 

You can view our charges on the planning pre-application fees page.

Planning pre-application advice

If you know that you need planning permission for your proposed development you can submit the details to us as a planning pre-application advice enquiry and we will:

  • give an indication of how likely it is that planning permission would be granted
  • outline the relevant planning policy considerations
  • where relevant highlight any potential highways issues
  • identify what supporting documentation your application will need

We can only give advice on specific proposals submitted to us, we cannot offer suggestions on what kinds of development are acceptable in a particular area. If you are looking for this sort of advice we recommend you consult a professional planning agent.
