This will give an opportunity for interested parties to meet a relevant planner or other senior official who can advise them in broad terms about their proposal.  Prospective applicants attending a pre-planning meeting should bring the following documentation:

  •  Sketch design of proposal
  •  Photographs of the site

It is important to note that individual sites cannot be inspected in advance of the information meeting.
