Planning advice and guidance
Planning permission is required for some building works and changes of use, and there are other consents that you may require for example advertisement or listed building consent.
Some works are permitted development, which does not require planning permission but you may still need to make a submission to the council before you can proceed.
Pre application advice
If you know you require planning permission and would like the council’s advice on whether your proposal is likely to be acceptable, you can apply for pre-application advice.
