Planning Advice (Cookstown)

We are continuing our series of drop in planning advice outreach sessions across the region.  The next one will be held on Thursday, 17 October 2019 in Cookstown (in the Rural Community Network’s office at 38a Oldtown Street) between 1.00 pm and 4.00 pm.


Our Planning Advice Service is part-funded by the Department for Infrastructure and enables us to provide free, confidential, impartial planning advice to people and communities who cannot afford to pay a private consultant. 


You can drop into the advice session any time between 1.00 pm and 4.00 pm to get one-to-one advice from our planners.  There is no need to make an appointment.  We can give advice on: 


  • how the planning system works (applications; fees; enforcement; appeals);
  • planning policies;
  • your council’s decision making process; and
  • how to comment or object if you think a proposal or a development will have a negative impact on your home or your community.


You can also get advice by telephone (9023 9444) or by email (
