Planning pre-application advice

Home extensions or domestic outbuildings

There is a charge for pre-application planning advice on home extensions or domestic outbuildings – go to apply for pre-application advice for details of charges and the time within which we will provide advice.

Your payment must have cleared before we meet with you or provide a written response.

You should send the following information so that we can offer the best advice:

  • proposals that explain what you wish to do, including measurements in metric
  • drawings at a scale of 1:200 – including buildings and trees – showing what you wish to do, with measurements in metric
  • a site plan in metric to show where the extension will go in relation to the existing dwelling and adjoining dwellings
  • photographs of the site
  • a daytime phone number or email address
