Advice prior to making a planning application
At the Planning and Environment Department we offer two different advice services to customers thinking about submitting a planning application:
- a drop-in advice service for smaller developments
- a pre-application meeting and advice service for larger developments
We will endeavour to provide customers who use these services with the best possible advice based on the information we have. We cannot guarantee however that any subsequent application will be approved as it will need to be subject to a full planning application assessment process.
The pre-application guidance notes will give you full details about this service and what you need to bring and what to expect from the meeting.
