Pre-application advice

Our pre-application advice service is an optional service offered by Buckinghamshire Council. The pre-application service is a great way to ‘test the water’ before submitting a full planning application, saving you time and money. Our pre-application advice can provide an informal view so you are aware whether your proposal is permitted development, whether you need planning permission and the likelihood of your planning permission being granted. Other benefits include; -Reducing the likelihood of submitting invalid applications.

  • Saves you the cost of submitting a full application if the proposal is unacceptable.
  • Reduces time generating proposals by professional advisors.
  • Helps you understand how current policy affects your proposal.
  • Assists your full application in being handled promptly.
