Pre Application Charges

For planning and related matters you can request written advice, an office meeting or on-site appointment with an officer using the form below. Please note enquiries with Heritage are on-site only and we do not offer written advice for this department.

The schedule setting out the fees is set out in the link below:

Pre-application fee schedule

There are various options available for you to select, a written response, a meeting, or an on-site appointment. Please note not all of these options are available, but depend upon the scale of your proposal, see the fee schedule for confirmation. Additional options are available for a further charge- Suffolk County Council Highways and Floods, our Heritage Department, and Ecological and Landscape advice (availability based on level and type of development).

An excel based calculator for fees has been designed in addition to the schedule and is included below for use and guidance.

Making an additional payment

We have a new form for making additional payments.

Additional pre application payment form

Please make sure to quote your pre application enquiry reference- this will enable us to marry up your new payment with your current enquiry.

Important Note

If you are unable to use the preferred methods of payment and wish to pay via BACS please call the Customer Services Team on 0300 123 4000 (option 5.3). They will give you your pre-application enquiry reference which you must quote when transferring money into either of our bank accounts. You must also email us to notify us of payment.

Failure to do this may cause a delay to the registration of your enquiry within the published timescales.
