Pre-application planning advice

Our formal response

The formal response to your request sets out our pre-application planning advice. The formal response depends on the complexity and nature of the proposed development, but could include:

  • relevant planning history and key issues to be addressed, including identifying potential impacts and site context
  • an assessment of whether the site complies with relevant local and national planning policies
  • design advice (comments on built form, scale, massing, views, street scene, historic context, etc)
  • impacts on amenity (which properties may be affected)
  • whether assessments such as noise, air quality, drainage/flooding, contaminated land, landscape or tree surveys need to be conducted
  • general transport policy advice on car and cycle parking standards, and electric charging points
  • identification of relevant constraints affecting the site, such as conservation areas or proximity to listed buildings

For a major development, you can also expect:

  • a meeting with the case officer (likely to be via Microsoft Teams). Further meetings usually require an additional request for advice and an additional charge
  • information on supporting documents required for submission with a subsequent planning application
  • advice on pre-application community engagement
  • information on potential infrastructure requirements, including potential impacts which may require mitigation through a Section 106 Agreement, such as infrastructure listed in the Infrastructure Delivery Plan
