It would be much appreciated if people would adhere to the time slots for the clinics which are as follows::



09:00am to 12:30pm  


This slot is a non-case specific public drop in facility only. This is a lay person information service and is reserved for this purpose. Persons should not seek to discuss a live case or specific case with a planner during this time. A person arriving to the drop-in clinic and wishing to discuss a live case or specific case are likely to be invited to make a prior appointment with the Planner for an alternative date or to submit a pre-planning enquiry. 


13:00pm to 16:00pm 


This slot is reserved for more detailed, specific or live cases and will work on a prior appointment basis only. Persons may discuss a specific case with a Planner during this slot only if a prior appointment is made with advance information given to the Planner. Please note only persons nominated to be notified of any decision on the Planning Application can discuss an application with the Planner. The Planner cannot discuss a live application with third parties. This slot should not be used as a drop-in facility or as an opportunity to discuss cases with a Planner which have not been pre-booked. Where someone wants to discuss a new proposal with a planner, they first need to submit a Pre planning Application Form with relevant details. They will then receive an acknowledgement which will quote the relevant pre planning number, they should then contact the relevant planner (see phone times below) and arrange a date for a meeting (just be sure to quote your reference number).

You are requested to respect these guidelines in the interests of providing a fair and effective clinic service.
