Request householder pre-application advice

Before applying for planning permission, you can use this form to request pre-application advice on your householder proposal.

In order to complete the form you will need to upload some supporting information.


  • A completed householder development pre-application form
  • The address of the application site
  • A location plan to clearly identify the location and dimensions of the site
  • Proposed site layout plan which outlines the application site in red, including a north point (dimensions to be shown or to scale, preferably at 1:500 or 1:200)
  • Proposed elevational drawings (dimensions or scale preferable at 1:100 or 1:50) if applicable
  • Details of means of access to the site if applicable

The more details submitted the more detailed a response we can provide so there is also a desirable list which would be useful but we would not invalidate an enquiry to obtain these.


  • An ordnance survey based location plan which outlines the application site in red (scale preferable at 1:2500 or 1:1250)
  • Photographs of the site
  • Site sections

Delays may occur if essential information is missing from your request. Invalid requests that do not meet the minimum requirements will not be progressed unless all the requested information has been submitted.
