Most Local Authorities provide a Pre Planning Service, which allows clients to make initial enquiries about intended applications, with feedback from the associated planning department.
All Pre Planning feedback is non committal and may not fully represent the views of the planning department at full application stage. While Pre Planning advice may be free, some Local Authorities charge a nominal fee for this service.
The Pre Planning enquiry could be a simple letter or a freehand sketch, which helps establish if a proposal is feasible, or if planning permission is required.
Walters Architects is happy to offer the most cost effective way of forming an appropriate Pre Planning enquiry.
