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

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.
