Planning advice services
We offer several planning advice services to help you with your planning application. We charge for these services.
Check our charges list for specific pricing. These charges have been in place since 1 April 2023. Find more information about our charges in our review of pre-application charges 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.
