Find a Planning Agent

Most planning applications require a location plan and site plan (also known as a block plan). Correctly drawn and accurate plans are essential for the planning process. It is wise to instruct a planning agent or architect to do these for you.

Where to locate planning agents

Please note CPBC cannot recommend any individual, agent or company. The selection of an agent remains wholly the responsibility of the individual requesting the service.

Castle Point's Pre Application Meeting and Advice

It is often a good idea to meet a planning officer for an informal discussion, or ask for a written evaluation of your proposal, before you submit a planning application. The pre application and advice service will give you advice about whether the council are likely to grant you planning permission for your proposals.
