Pre-Application Advice


This service is essential in order to provide a thorough investigation of your planning proposal to outline the options available and to determine how best to secure planning permission application. It provides you with professional planning advice and guidance at the outset, saving both time and money during the planning process.

Our Pre Application Service provides:

  • A meeting and site visit (if necessary) to discuss your proposal and view site context and any relevant documentation;
  • An assessment of the site and surroundings;
  • A follow up letter from a planning consultant, giving advice and detailing how best to proceed; and
  • Where appropriate, a follow-up submission of a Pre-Application Request to the local planning authority to negotiate and secure feedback before the preparation and submission of a planning application.

The objective of this service is to prevent wasted time and expense and help to overcome any site-specific issues that may be encountered at a later planning application stage.

For more information or to speak to one of our planning consultants without obligation, please contact us.


Upminster – Following AM-P’s full appraisal of the former office building, a Pre-Application package was submitted to Havering Council proposing the redevelopment of the site for residential use. This was followed by a meeting with a planning officer which enabled initial design issues to be overcome prior to the submission of a planning application, which is currently awaiting a decision.
