Pre-application advice


All planning applications are decided in accord with the policies contained in the Local Development Plan (LDP), unless there are material planning considerations that indicate otherwise.

There's also guidance contained in the Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG). For example, if you're proposing a house extension, then the Householder Design Guide is relevant.  If you're proposing a development and want to see what policies apply and how your application will be assessed, then please read the relevant parts of these documents.
