I’ve Received Negative Pre-Application Advice – Should I Give up?

Negative pre-application advice can be disheartening and as can be seen from our earlier blog posts, it’s something clients come to us with all too often. Unfortunately, this can be a product of over worked Planning Teams at your Council not spending sufficient time looking at your proposal to give it proper consideration. However, it’s rarely the end of the road. Sometimes proposals just need simple tweaks to bring them in accordance with Policy, and others your proposal may be perfectly acceptable but is lacking robust Supporting Statements which highlight the benefits and lack of impacts it will bring.

In many cases, this is because tourist facilities are allowed in locations where other uses (including residential development) would normally be prohibited by local planning policies.

Planning Committees Explained

Whilst everyone hopes for a smooth ride when they submit a planning application, decisions can sometimes be controversial. Even the simplest of schemes may raise a few eyebrows or cause concerns, and controversy is almost certainly heightened due to the openness of the planning system, which invites public opinion.

Nevertheless, decision making should be based on an informed judgement, which balances competing interests against local and national planning policy. Therefore, to ensure that decision making is fair, contentious proposals, whether big or small, are frequently decided at Planning Committee.
