Advice before making an application

We take a proactive approach to development proposals and we encourage applicants to enter into discussions before submitting a planning application. This will allow any issues to be identified and discussed at an early stage so that possible solutions can be suggested. It will also ensure that the correct information is supplied with any application so avoiding delays.

This service is free of charge. Any advice given will be accurate and objective but will be without prejudice to the formal consideration of any subsequent application.

You can contact us at to arrange a meeting or discuss your proposals with a Planning Officer.
