Apply for pre & post application advice
It can be very helpful to seek the Council’s advice about your planning proposals before submitting your actual application. This can help to overcome potential difficulties and ensure the application deals with all important planning considerations.
We will aim to respond to you within 4-6 weeks of submission, depending on the complexity of the proposal. However major applications may take significantly longer to deal with. In such instances we will seek to agree appropriate timescales, ideally as part of a PPA.
Your application will not be processed without payment, so, please ensure you have all the funds ready prior to filling in the online application form.
Please note, from the 1 April 2023 the hourly rate will increase from £150 to £180 (inc VAT).
