Advice prior to making a planning application
At the Department of the Environment we offer two different advice services to customers thinking about submitting a planning application:
- a drop-in advice service for householders
- a pre-application meeting and advice service for larger developments
To make submitting a request easier, you can download our form here.
PO - Pre application form (size 277kb)
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.
