Copies, where appropriate, are available free up to a cumulative single transaction value of £10 for individuals (the discretion of Director of Service to be applied in cases of multiple separate transactions) and charged at full cost to representatives of professional and/or commercial companies.

Charging for pre-application advice

In the case of advice in respect of permitted development rights, the service is intended to provide you with an officer opinion as to whether planning permission is required for your proposals.  However, it should be noted that this is informal advice and as such does not have the same status as a Certificate of Lawfulness.

The revised charges set out under Section 6 of this guidance note will apply to all enquiries received on or after 1 April 2022, and are inclusive of VAT which currently stands at 20%.
