Planning Enforcement Pre-Application Advice

The Enforcement Pre-Application Advice Service has been introduced to provide detailed advice on an application with a focus on negotiating a more complex remedy to a breach of planning control.

This type of pre-application will be at the recommendation of an Enforcement Officer, where there has been a Enforcement investigation and engagement has already commenced. You can also choose to use this service independently.

We want you to ‘get it right’ before you submit your planning application which will:

  • be more efficient.
  • save on costs.
  • speed up your planning application.
  • speed up a resolution to close an enforcement case.

We aim to have an open exchange of information, cooperate to bring together the right people to problem solve, and collaborate with you to resolve material planning issues.

We will clearly establish the options available to you with reference to the Development Plan framework and your timeframe. At the heart of this is our commitment to communicate effectively – to be precise, concise and unambiguous.
