Pre-Application Advice

What is Pre-Application Advice?

Worcester City Council seeks to provide a positive climate for pre-application discussions, offering an approach with impartial and professional advice within an agreed time frame. The service is structured to provide an ‘in principle' feed back on your proposals as well as more detailed discussions and negotiations on a scheme before you submit a formal application.

The service is not compulsory and may not be appropriate for all situations, however, the Council actively encourages pre-application discussions for all development proposals before submission for formal consideration.

Please note The fee must be received with your application before your request can be dealt with.

If you would like to use this service please complete the pre-application advice request form, as this will help the Planning Officer to provide a comprehensive response to your enquiry. The service is chargeable and the fees applied from April 2017 can be found online. Please submit your enquiry to :
