Pre-application enquiries are a useful way of obtaining an informal view from the Local Planning Authority on the likelihood of achieving permission, as well as guidance on the information to be submitted with the application. Pre-application enquiries can be an invaluable way of informing and refining a proposal at a relatively early stage which may well result in time and expense being saved as the application progresses.
