Pre-application advice

Due to unprecedented high numbers of planning applications we are unable to accept pre-application enquires at this time. For any major housing developments please email planning@southribble.gov.uk for further guidance. 

You can get advice from us before you submit a planning application.

We welcome and encourage discussions, as they can help achieve a better standard of application, improve the quality of the design and speed up the process of getting planning permission.

The charge for this service depends on the size of the development proposed:
