Our service
We provide a pre-application advice service. This can help you establish whether your development is acceptable in principle before submitting a formal planning application. This way any key planning issues and how to address them can be identified early on and applications can be processed more quickly. A fee is payable for this service.

Applications affecting the public highways

Surrey County Council welcomes pre-application discussions. They have introduced a system of charges for providing pre-application advice which is set out on their website.
