Planning advice and guidance

Why get planning advice

Arranging advice before making an application can:

  • improve your proposal
  • reduce the risk of a refusal or need to appeal
  • help ensure your application is complete
  • let you know what guidance and policies are relevant for your proposal
  • avoid delays
  • save time and money
  • make you aware at an early stage of any contributions you may need to pay

We offer planning advice services, including pre-application advice – see links above. Please note, getting pre-application advice does not guarantee you will secure planning permission.
