Mini planning guides and case studies

We are currently experiencing intermittent technical issues whilst migrating to a new Planning system, please accept our apologises during this period.

Pre-application Advice

The pre application and enquiry service has TEMPORARILY been SUSPENDED due to the high volume of applications we are receiving. Pre applications for major and strategic developments will continue to be accepted. 

If you are seeking advice on whether planning permission would be required please see our planning guides.

Alternatively you can submit a certificate of lawfulness application. 

If you use the links below you will find information on whether you require planning permission for your householder project type. The mini guides and case study provides further information. (These links will take you to the Planning Portal National Planning Guidance).
