Complete the pre-application advice form and attach any relevant supporting documents.
Once the completed form has been received you will receive an acknowledgement letter confirming your application reference number and the name of your allocated Case Officer.
If a meeting is required, we will contact you to arrange this.
A pre-application advice meeting will take place, if required, with your allocated Case Officer, usually within 15 workings days of receiving a valid pre-application advice request.
Within 15 working days (of either a valid request or a meeting) we will write to you confirming the advice we gave you at the meeting, or with advice on your proposal.
If you require further substantial advice or meetings, a further fee is likely to be required.
Submit your formal planning application. It will be helpful if you notify us of the planning officer who dealt with your pre-application advice.
Please note that at times of high workloads, these timescales may be increased. However, we will always endeavour to contact you to agree on an appropriate response time.
