Pre-application and general advice

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 Development Control team 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.
