The Planning Service will be opening its doors to residents offering free advice and tips for anyone wanting to extend or alter their homes. The event is aimed at people who want to undertake a project but don’t know where to start.

We recognise that in general people put in very few applications in a lifetime and we want to help demystify the planning process.

The day will include drop-in planning & building regulation clinics, tours of the department, an opportunity to find out more about what’s happening around the district, neighbourhood planning and the local plan.

The programme of talks and seminars includes:

1.15pm – 1.30pm
Welcome, an Introduction to our Planning Service and an opportunity to meet our Joint Planning Director
1.45pm – 2.05pm
How to make a planning application & get it right
2.20pm – 2.40pm
The benefits of seeking pre-application advice
2.55pm – 3.15pm
Extending your house near trees? What to do.
3.30pm – 3.50pm
Listed Buildings – Altering or extending a listed building, what do I need to think about?
4.05pm – 4.25pm

4.40pm – 5pm
Thinking about a career in Planning?

We’ll also have the mobile exhibition showing the A14 scheme and plans for the recently launched A428 road improvements on display.

A similar event will be happening at Cambridge City Council in the morning (9am-12noon in the Guildhall).
