Pre-Application Advice

Our pre-application advice service is currently suspended. We are sorry but we do not expect the service to re-open before late Autumn 2024.

To assist you in preparing your planning application, the Council's planning policies can be viewed on the Planning Policies section of the website.

A wealth of information on the planning application process is also available on the Planning Portal website and you can also visit the government's website to view national planning policies.

For further advice on submitting planning applications please visit our Planning Process Explained page and Validation page.

We recommend that you use a planning agent for applications, some of which can be found on the planning portal, see External Links below.
