Pre-application advice service
Since January 2022 our pre-application advice service has been suspended. We are not be accepting any requests for pre-application advice, other than for schemes relating to Grade 1 and Grade 2* listed buildings (but not Grade 2 buildings), for proposals that constitute Major Development, and for proposals that the Authority regards to be major e.g. by virtue of the nature and characteristics of the case and its impact on the special qualities of the National Park.
We will continue to accept simpler enquiries seeking advice as to the need for planning permission and listed building consent, which is a free service.
We appreciate this decision may cause significant inconvenience and apologise for that, however it has been made necessary due to resource issues in the Planning Service which we are currently making every effort to address.
We continue to review the suspension of our pre app service regularly. In order to enable our planning officers to continue to focus on processing applications, we will not be in a position to restart the pre-application advice service until at least Spring 2024, when a further review will take place. We understand that this will cause inconvenience to applicants and agents, and apologise again for this.
