A paper submitted to next week’s overview and scrutiny committee states: 

“Pre-application advice will be published as and when appropriate as and once a planning application has been received and resources permit.”

The report adds:  “For the reasons set out in the report, the position adopted is an appropriate one in advance of the review to be carried out by the development manager.”

I am told by a senior officer that the review is to determine the practical/operational aspects of implementing the council decision.

The link to the meeting is below, which takes place on Thursday 30 January, starting at 6.30pm. The agenda also covers a report on the office relocation, GP commissioning and budget information.
