Our role in planning

Includes our roles as minerals and waste planning authority, highways authority and statutory consultee

Planning pre-application advice services

We offer pre-application advice services for planning applications relating to:

  • minerals and waste
  • county council developments, such as schools
  • community infrastructure
  • highways
  • sustainable drainage (SuDs)

We also offer a ‘Planning Performance Agreement’ for larger, more complex planning applications. This agreement provides a framework for handling major planning applications. It allows us to give a coordinated single response to a development proposal.

See our Planning advice page, to find out how much these services cost and how to apply.
