Pre-planning application advice

As a temporary measure until staff resource is back to capacity the Highway Authority will not be responding to pre-application enquiries. It is hoped that this service will resume in April 2019. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Pre-application services is an important part of the planning process. It means that the quality of applications can be improved and speedier decisions can be made. The process then has more certainty and clarity because planning issues and requirements can be identified before an application is submitted.
