Why can I not be told informally that planning permission is required?

In April 2012 the Council was forced to charge for pre-application advice.  In consultation with a Member working party it was decided it would be unfair to charge for what were informal Officer level opinions.  This means that formal Certificate of Lawfulness Applications have to be made which we aim to deal with in 21 days.  It is not possible to respond immediately on receipt of the enquiry as the site history has to be checked and a site visit may be required.
