Advice & guidance

If you’re looking for guidance on how to take forward your development proposal, our Local Development Plan, along with the supplementary guidance, sets out our planning policies. It also includes information on site appraisal and survey work we would expect to be undertaken. It is used to guide development and make decisions on planning applications in the National Park.

The resources on this page will help you with the preparation of your application or enquiry and cover our planning procedures and processes. If you are unsure what details will be required and what guidance applies to your proposal, we recommend that you make use of our free pre-application service.
