Pre-application advice

Pre-application advice is optional - you don't have to use it. However, if you don't use it or if advice given is not reflected in your application, we will not negotiate further changes to the project.

We will make our decision based on what is submitted.

If your planning application is not approved, this may delay your project and create extra costs.

This service is available if you are considering any development and would like advice before submitting a planning application. This includes anything from building extensions, to building multiple houses.

Advice is available either:

  • in writing
  • in a meeting at our offices
  • at an appointment onsite

Please read how Planning are operating during COVID-19 to check the types of meetings available.

The fee will depend on the size of the development proposed.

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