Pre application advice for clients

This piece of work is worth 50% of the overall module mark. The word count is 2,500 words (+/- 10%).

You will act as a local authority planning officer and prepare a pre-application advice report for a developer who is seeking planning advice on the proposed redevelopment of a site in the London Borough of Camden. Your report will outline the stages involved in submitting and processing the planning application, explain the relevant planning policy (stick to Camden Local Policy), highlight any other planning considerations that might be relevant, and give an opinion the likelihood of receiving planning permission for the development as proposed by the developer.

The coursework should be written as a letter to the developer on the attached pre-application template which is in the assessment folder, however you may wish to break the letter down by headings in order to relay the required information and answer the questions. This is a formal letter written on behalf of the council, so your writing style should express professionalism and be helpful to the developer in terms of their questions which you will find on the cover letter within the Coursework 2 folder.

Whilst it is up to you to decide how the letter is formatted, some suggested headings may consist of the following:

Site Description;
Proposal;
The application process;
Relevant Policies;
Material Considerations

An opinion on the acceptability of the scheme based upon the information given to you. Are there any suggestions which may assist the scheme?
