We offer a pre-application advice service to anyone wanting guidance prior to the submission of a planning application.
By using this service you will be able to find out whether your proposal is acceptable in planning terms, as well as improve the quality of the proposal and highlight the key issues that should be addressed in your application.
The advice will help to ensure your submission contains all information required, which can prevent delays in the planning process – potentially saving you time and money.
The more information you give us during pre-application discussions, the more comprehensive the advice we can give you.
Below is a list of required information, however, if you have and can provide further information, this will allow for more in-depth and informed advice.
|Request for whether planning permission is required||£50 + VAT (£60 incl. VAT)|
|Minor applications*||£500 + VAT (£600 incl. VAT)|
|Major applications*||£1,000 + VAT (£1,200 incl. VAT)|
*Further details of the pre-application advice service we offer including what we will do, the timescales for the provision of advice, what the advice will contain and the scale of fees is available in our pre-application advice document.
In addition, a specialist pre-application advice service is available to aid the preparation of your application’s environmental information for landscape, ecology, the historic environment and sustainable drainage and flood risk. This enhanced service offers more detailed and specialist advice on these topics and, in most cases, can be offered in a bespoke manner to suit your particular requirements.
