Get advice before making an application

If you know you need planning permission

You can contact us for advice before submitting a planning application. We'll usually give you an opinion as to whether you are likely to get approval for your project, and can you help resolve any problems at an early stage.

You can either:

  1. Come in and see a planning officer. Appointments are available every Wednesday at Buxton Town Hall. You will need to contact us on 0345 129 7777 or e-mail us to make an appointment.
     
  2. Complete the pre-application advice form which will be looked at by a planning officer. You will receive a full response within 28 working days, unless otherwise agreed with us.

Pre-application advice is only offered if you already know that you need planning permission for your project.

Charges

We do not charge householders for pre-application advice.
