Making an application

Pre-application advice can often help to resolve issues and save you time and expense. We offer a pre-application advice service to provide advice on policy and design issues.

It is important you make sure the details submitted are those that you want to undertake, as even minor changes can require a fresh planning application, which will be subject to exactly the same process as before.

All application information is available for public inspection.  Prior to submitting your application please read our privacy notice for details of how your data is used.
