Businesses: Building new premises

The construction of new business premises will generally require an application for planning permission.
The relevant development plan for your area will help to give you an indication of whether your proposal is likely to be acceptable.
You may wish to discuss the proposal with your local area planning office before submitting an application. If there are difficulties, officers may be able to suggest ways to make your proposal more acceptable. However, they cannot guarantee that planning permission will be granted.
