3. Pre-application advice service

If you would like help with your householder planning permission application, you can apply for our pre application advice service.

The pre-application service costs £25 for householder planning permission. We will provide a written response to all valid pre-application enquiries within 21 days, unless an extension of time is agreed between the authority and applicant. 

As a minimum, you will receive the following information:

  • The relevant planning history of the site
  • The relevant development plan policies against which the development proposal will be assessed
  • Relevant supplementary planning guidance (i.e. design, conservation etc.)
  • Any other material planning considerations
  • An initial assessment of the proposed development, based on the information above
