Extended Pre-Application Advice

Pre-application advice reduces the risk of an application for consent being refused by the decision-making body, with all of the wasted expense that would entail.

Extended Pre-Application Advice covers our engagement in ongoing pre-application advice beyond the initial free service (a free cycle of advice). Customers benefit from ongoing verbal and written advice, such as regular involvement in design team meetings and comments on emerging schemes, from a named lead specialist from Historic England.

A full description of our Extended Pre-application Advice service can be seen in the EAS Service Descriptions document below.

Our free service

Information on our free initial pre-application advice (free cycle) is within the Service Description above. It is available to prospective applicants for planning permission affecting designated heritage assets, listed building consent, faculty consent where we would be statutory consultees should an application be made (including NSIPs and EIAs).

How to apply for Extended Pre-Application Advice

Extended Pre-Application Advice is available by contacting your local Historic England office.
