We will identify any planning issues you need to know about before putting in a formal proposal.

This early indication of the council's general position on a proposal can save you both time and money.

Please be as detailed as you can when telling us about your proposal. Useful information can include:

  • site and location plans
  • sketches
  • business cases.


Read our privacy statement on how we store and process your information. We will not publish details of your enquiry.
