Pre-application advice and planning performance agreements during the COVID-19 pandemic
This will enable case officers and our support staff to focus on maintaining delivery of timely decisions on planning applications.
We have recently reviewed the position, and we will not be able to reinstate the pre-application advice services for the development categories outlined above until early October 2021.
There are a small number of applications in the suspended categories where we have already agreed to provide advice during July / August. We will deal with these commitments in line with the timescales already agreed.
