Request planning pre-application advice

The council provides pre-planning application advice for anyone considering proposals that may require planning permission or a related consent. The advice will help speed up the development process and avoid unacceptable proposals.

Make payment for existing requests

We offer free advice if:

  • your query is related to trees
  • your proposal is related to a disabled access improvement

The benefits of pre application advice are:

  • understanding how our policies will be applied to your proposal
  • identifying the need for specialist input at an early stage
  • assisting in the preparation of proposals for formal submission
  • helping to reduce the time that you or your professional advisors spend in working up the proposals
  • indicating those proposals that are completely unacceptable

Engagement with Councillors

Requests for meetings are to be made through the Cabinet Secretariat and Member Services team by emailing developermeetings@westminster.gov.uk.

These contact details should only be used for requests to meet Councillors and the Planning Committee Chairman on planning matters. Submission of pre-application enquiries should be made using the calculate fee and apply option.
