Planning advice notes offer technical advice and information on certain policy areas. Your local planning authority will regularly publish Planning Advice Notes (PANs) to provide more information on good practices to help those applying for planning permissions. Planning Advice Notes are often categorised by different types of developments they refer to and get updated regularly. They are a great source of information, especially if you choose to submit a request for pre-application advice from your LPA without the help of a town planning consultant.

To find out more relevant information about the type of planning permission you need, head to your local planning authority’s website and find their Planning Advice Notes page.
