Pre Applications

A pre application service allows you to obtain informal planning guidance and advice from your Local Authority on a proposal or idea, prior to a formal application.

A pre application process is particularly useful for:

  • Larger householder extensions and alterations;

  • Development of dwellings and commercial premises

  • Complicated sites and mixed uses

Unlike planning applications and consents for which the fees are set at national level, local authorities set their own pre application service fee levels. Contact us today and we can find out the fees and types of pre application services relevant to your project

In addition, local authorities set their own service standards relating to time frame for a detailed response. Contact us today to find out more about typical time frames for response from your local authority planning department.
