(LCCC’s minutes secretary apologises for the late publication of these approved minutes. He was unable to attend the April meeting, and so his normal cycle was interrupted. However, there is no difference in content (apart from correcting a few punctuation errors) between the record below and the draft March minutes published here: https://leithccc.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/2019_03_18-draft-v1.pdf.)

Edinburgh Council, as the planning authority for Edinburgh, is looking to reform its pre-application advice service, including the introduction of service charges. Pre-application advice is considered to be an important part of the planning service to ensure the submissions of quality applications and to reduce the time spent on processing them. However, to meet the ongoing budget challenges, the way the pre-application advice service operates needs to change.
A consultation paper on the reform of the pre-application advice service has been published and we are seeking your views on the scope to improve and enhance the pre-application service.
The consultation will run from 6 March to 3 of April 2019 and the feedback received will inform a report to be considered by the Planning Committee in May 2019. The consultation paper can be accessed via this link and takes only 5 minutes to complete.
