A pre-application enquiry is a preliminary step taken by individuals or developers who are considering the development of property or land. It involves the submission of an information pack to the local planning authorities in order to seek informal guidance and feedback before formally submitting a planning application. A local planning authority's feedback is often given verbally in a meeting and subsequently confirmed in writing. The aim is to gain valuable insight into potential concerns and requirements associated with a future planning application.
