Planning Act 2008: Guidance on pre-application consultation

This guidance note sets out the procedures for pre-application consultation on nationally significant infrastructure projects, as required by the Planning Act 2008.

The document is primarily aimed at promoters, to help them understand how the pre-application consultation requirements of the new regime should be implemented. It aims to set out what the Government considers to be good practice and how it should be achieved, and in particular, to give an indication as to what sort of consultation is appropriate for different kinds of projects.
