Planning application advice | Oxfordshire County Council

Planning application advice

We offer planning advice before you submit an application.

We strongly encourage all applicants to contact us for advice before submitting applications so that:

  • potential issues can be explored at an early stage
  • applications are submitted with the relevant information
  • the application is processed smoothly and enables a timely decision to be reached.

The cost of providing pre-application advice will be met by the developer rather than the public.
