Pre-application planning advice can prove to be an invaluable service for anyone looking to submit a planning application to their local planning authority. By seeking pre-application planning advice, you can ensure that you are using the correct planning form and submitting the correct drawings. Your town planning consultant will be able to give you an informal view of the likelihood of achieving your planning permission or steer you towards an alternative route that may achieve the desired results. Similarly, when seeking pre-application planning permission, some people discover that their project falls under ‘permitted development’ and that they don’t need to submit a planning application at all. Therefore, seeking pre-application planning advice is definitely worth it as it could potentially save you time and money.
