You must submit a location plan with the site outlined in red in order for us to validate your pre-application request. However, the more information you can provide about your proposal, the more accurate and in-depth our feedback can be.
We encourage you to submit the following:
- Site address
- Description of proposal
- Site plan with development hatched in red
- Existing and proposed floor plans and elevations
- Supporting photographs of the site and/or street
- For more complex proposals, surveys regarding ecology, trees, flood risk or transport could be provided
Although the Council does not automatically publicise pre-application requests, under the Freedom of Information Act we may be required to release them unless they are commercially sensitive. Personal details are still protected under the Data Protection Act and would not be released in any instance.
Some third parties (e.g. Environment Agency or Historic England) may have a separate charging schedule for pre-application advice. The Council will not automatically consult with these parties at the pre-application stage and therefore you are advised to contact them direct.
To apply for pre application advice please complete the online form above, upload the relevant documents and pay the fee.
