Pre-application advice

Pre-application advice is optional, so you don't have to use it. However, if you don't use it or if advice given at pre-application stage is not reflected in your application, we will not normally negotiate further changes to the project and will make our decision based on what is submitted. If your planning application is not approved, this may delay your project and incur extra costs.  


This service is available if you are considering a development, from extensions to large residential development and would like advice before you submit a planning application.

Advice is available either in writing, as a meeting in our offices, or a meeting on site. The fee will depend on the size of the development proposed.

Please use the buttons below for more information about how to make an enquiry, details of the advice we provide, and the charges for this.
