We recommend you get advice to make sure your application has the best chance of succeeding. We offer different levels of pre-application advice: find out more about these here.
For large, complex or strategic developments, this may also include a Place Review Panel and presentation to Planning Committee.
There is a fee for this advice, but it may save you money by getting your application in good shape – we will not negotiate on submitted planning applications except in exceptional circumstances so issues should be resolved at pre-application stage
We can advise you about:
- what our guidance documents state
- whether the proposal is likely to be accepted
There are also other professional organisations that can give you advice on your proposals.
