Please make sure you have read and met the application requirements and checklist before submitting a planning application.

We offer a pre-application advice service which can help to avoid costly mistakes, save time, identify potential problems early on and find solutions and get advice about how to improve your scheme.

The advice provided includes information about the implications of the Welwyn Garden City Estate Management Scheme, which exists to protect the environment and heritage of Welwyn Garden City. You may need to make a separate Estate Management Scheme Application.

Planning permission is required for works to trees.
