Planning pre-application advice

Home extensions or domestic outbuildings

Pre-application planning advice on home extensions or domestic outbuildings will be charged at the follow rates from 1 January 2015:

  • written response - £25 plus VAT
  • 15-minute meeting and follow-up written advice - £55 plus VAT

The 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:

  • scaled drawings of what you wish to do, or measurements in metric of what you are proposing

  • a daytime phone number or email address

We aim to reply within 15 working days.
