Will I get planning permission?

Will I get planning permission?

We welcome and encourage discussions before you make your planning application. This often helps the process along by dealing with any issues at the earliest stage and so can result in a speedier decision. Limited free guidance about policy, design and other matters can be obtained in person at the Civic Centre and at surgeries we run at the Easingwold and Stokesley area offices as follows:
  • Civic Centre: 8.45 - 5.15 Monday to Thursday and 8.45 - 4.45 Friday
  • Stokesley: 2.00 - 4.30 by appointment on every other Tuesday afternoon
  • Easingwold: 9.30 - 12.30 by appointment on every other Wednesday morning 

The advice we give in this way will be accurate and objective but will not be based on extensive research and is therefore limited in scope.

What kind of professional advice can I get?

For more comprehensive advice, including relevant legislation, Government advice and planning policies, and detailed advice on design, layout and other matters, use this form.
 
The fee varies according to the scale and nature of the development but in all cases our aims are to:
  • Achieve better quality applications on submission
  • Deliver a better service to our customers
  • Reduce delays in decision-making
  • Work proactively with developers and the community to support growth
  • Provide the opportunity for more productive community engagement on development
  • Maximise the use of the pre-application stage to resolve issues and provide solutions

What kind of service do I get for my planning application?

Whilst we will try to provide the most comprehensive advice we can, it is not possible to cover everything that may arise in a subsequent application so all pre-application advice is given on a “without prejudice” basis.
