Pre-application advice

Pre-application advice is an important part of the planning process.

We welcome early discussions before you submit a planning application.

This can help you by:

  • giving you advice about the acceptability of your proposed development
  • identifying any problems which you may need to solve
  • identifying financial contributions
  • avoiding abortive work
  • providing greater certainty about your application
  • speeding up the application process

How to apply

To apply for pre-application advice, download the pre-application advice guidance document. This contains more details about the service and prices. You will also need the pre-application advice form.
