Pre-application planning advice
We welcome pre-application discussions and strongly encourage you to consult with us before submitting your planning application.
We offer advice on proposals, which can help overcome issues which could impact on the success of your application.
We introduced a charge for this service on 1 April 2022.
The benefits of seeking pre-application advice include:
- saving your time and resources
- raising the quality of your development
- speeding up the planning process
- reducing the chance of making unsuccessful applications
- identifying the need for expert input earlier
In certain circumstances, you can make minor changes to your property under permitted development rights.
You can find more information on permitted development rights on the Planning Portal website.
Please note, in certain circumstances the permitted development rights may have been removed from a property, either in full or in part.
You can apply for a Certificate of Lawfulness to secure a formal decision on whether the work you intend to carry out falls under permitted development rights.
Before carrying out work at your home, you need to check the work complies with building regulations.
You can contact Warwick Building Control for advice on the regulations.
