Advice on major development proposals

Major development proposals are often complex and raise a number of issues. We strongly encourage all developers to enter into early discussions on major proposals.

We will take a proactive approach to such discussions and where appropriate will organise a development management meeting where all the key technical bodies and consultees will be invited to attend. These meetings have the following benefits:

  • They allow all of the interested parties to discuss the fundamental issues relating to a particular development
  • Help to identify the constraints of the site
  • Highlight the planning policies that are relevant to a particular site or development proposal
  • Clarify the type and level of information that would be needed to accompany any planning application 
  • Provide an opportunity to discuss any potential solutions to the issues that have been identified.
  • Experience has shown that such meetings help to prevent unnecessary delays and costs to applicants.

For free pre-application advice, please complete and return a form.

To arrange a meeting or discuss your proposals with a Planning Officer, please contact us.
