Unfortunately due to staff shortages we are temporarily unable to offer pre-application services at present except for major applications. We are currently seeking to recruit additional staff and hope to be able to resume the service soon.

If after checking the Planning Portal and the existing planning permissions for a property you are still unsure as to whether planning permission is required you can submit an enquiry to us and we will tell you in writing if planning permission is required, if Building Regulations apply and if your project is likely to receive planning approval. We will make all the checks regarding constraints, policies and history of the site for you.
