Before submitting a full application and carrying out extensive survey or plan work, we can help to apply for pre-application advice from the Local Authority. We would prepare a case for the proposal and either seek written advice or have a meeting with the Local Planning Authority to explore its acceptability.

Pre-application work is very useful in establishing the Council’s views on a scheme before undertaking more costly plan work and can help to tease out any issues which we will then resolve before submitting a full application.
