Planning Pre-application Advice
Pre-application advice service
We offer a written service for which a charge is made. A ‘virtual’ meeting can also be arranged.
A drop in, on-demand service is no longer provided and all meetings are by appointment only.
All requests for pre-application written advice must be made using the correct form together with any supporting information requested by the form.
- Householder pre-application online enquiry form (for extensions, conservatories, porches, fencing, walls)
- Non-householder pre-application online enquiry form (for new residential development, commercial, change of use, listed building)
This covers proposals for:
- Planning permission
- Permitted developments
- Consent to carry out work to protected trees
- Listed buildings
