Planning advice services

We offer several planning advice services to help you with your planning application. We charge for these services.

Check our fees list for specific pricing. These fees have been in place since April 2022. Find more information about our charges in our review of pre-application fees for minor, householder, changes of use and listed building proposals.

Pre-application advice service

You can use our pre-application advice service before you apply for planning permission. You can use this service to discuss your project ideas with a planning officer, so that you can resolve any planning policy or design issues before you submit your application. This means that when you make your planning application, you're more likely to be granted planning permission.

Planning Performance Agreement service

You can use our Planning Performance Agreement (PPA) service to get support with an application for a complex or large development. A PPA provides a project management framework for handling a development proposal from pre-application stage through to decision. 

Planning application amendments service

You must use our planning application amendment service  to make changes to your planning application after you've submitted it. This includes changes to the design of your project, and any updates to your supporting documents.
