Home improvements? Check out our pre-application advice service

If you’re thinking about making home improvements that may need planning permission, our planning advice service can help.

Planning officers can guide you through the pre-application process, giving advice on the procedure, consultation and estimated timescale of your application. Our officers have local knowledge of the planning system and the planning history of buildings, as well as information on relevant national and local planning policies that could affect your scheme.

Cost of the professional advice depends on the size of the scheme, but written comments on a small-scale development such as an extension would be just over £100.

Take a look at our updated 'pre-application planning advice service' webpage.
