Due to a 40% increase in the number of planning applications being submitted, we are experiencing difficultly processing planning applications and pre-applications within the statutory targets set by government.
As the determination of planning applications remains our current priority, we are unfortunately unable to commit to responding to pre-application enquiries for minor and householder development proposals at this present time. We would therefore recommend that for any new enquiries you proceed directly to the submission of a planning application.
We continue to extend our sincerest apologies for the further delay and appreciate your continued patience during this exceptionally busy and difficult period.
Please ensure you have read the pre-application guidance notes before completing and submitting this form. This form allows you to attach proposed site layouts and drawings. Please note, the maximum total size of attachments is 10MB and if this is exceeded, the completed form will not come through to us
After an application has been submitted, we will be in contact with you within 4 working days regarding payment
For major schemes the Council will provide you with an individual fee estimate for the provision of advice, based on the initial assessment of your scheme, the issues it is likely to raise and the time required to fully consider it
Please note, there are different costs depending on the type of pre-application.
Please select which pre-application advice you require, please note you may wish to seek two different services, in which case please select all appropriate options
