Pre-application advice

We encourage applicants and agents to obtain pre-application advice before submitting a formal planning application.

Please note that owing to current circumstances relating to Covid-19 there will inevitably be disruption to the day to day running of the Planning Service and this will include the processing of planning and building regulation applications and other work areas. Officers are still working remotely and have full access to emails but may be required to assist other essential Council services during this challenging time.   We are confident our contingency plans enable us to operate effectively, but we may need to make difficult choices in relation to other priorities if required.  Thank you for your understanding.

By using this service, we can check whether you require planning permission and if you do, that you are on the right lines before you apply. By doing this you could save time and money and improve your chances of having your proposal approved.

We welcome the opportunity to provide pre-application advice for all types of proposals.
