Pre-application advice and planning fees

The Council is committed in working with prospective applicants to improve the quality of planning submissions by offering pre-application advice.

The Council encourages prospective applicants to contact the Planning Department to discuss their proposals before making an application.

Pre-Application advice is encouraged as the more issues that can be resolved at the pre-application stage, the greater the benefits for all parties, for example early engagement about a proposal can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the planning application process. It also has the potential to improve the quality and coordination of planning application proposals.

Pre-application forms as well as all of the Fees and Charges related to services that the Planning Department provide can be found below.

In addition you can find details of the Planning Application Fee (does not include pre-application fees) increase that is in place from 6 December 2023 here.
