Status of advice
All pre-application advice is provided in good faith and is based on the information you provide.
Furthermore, all advice is given without prejudice to the formal consideration of any subsequent planning application, which would include a statutory publicity process being carried out and/or consultations with statutory agencies. For this reason this we cannot offer any guarantees about the outcome of a planning application when providing advice.
All requests for advice are potentially subject to disclosure in response to Freedom of Information or Environmental Information Regulations requests. Confidentiality cannot therefore be guaranteed when using the service.
