Pre-application planning advice

Development control consultative forum

If you are about to submit a major proposal that could have an impact on a number of interested parties, you can ask us to deal with your pre-application advice as a consultative forum.  This is a discretionary service.

Who attends the forums

Attendees at the forums include:

  • councillors
  • planning officers
  • other public bodies such as Natural England, the Environment Agency, and the Highways Agency
  • neighbours.

Contact us to request attendance at a development control forum. You will need to provide a brief outline of your proposal and we will confirm your place if the application is suitable.



PLEASE NOTE Any advice given by Waverley officers for pre-application enquiries does not indicate any formal decision by Waverley as the Local Planning Authority. Any views or opinions are given in good faith, and are based on relevant issues in place at the time of consideration, without prejudice to the formal consideration of any planning application. The final decision on any forthcoming planning application can only be taken after Waverley has consulted local people, statutory consultees and any other interested parties. The final decision on an application will then be made either by the relevant Planning Committee or the Head of Planning Services under delegated powers and will be based on all the information available at the time.
