Pre application advice

Our Pre Application Service is now live. This involves a range of services, with written advice, meetings, and on site appointments available. There is a charge for this service, at various rates depending on the type and level of advice you would like. The previous duty appointment and call back service is no longer available except to conclude existing enquiries already made.
