Planning Advice Outreach

We are continuing our series of drop in planning advice sessions throughout the region.  The next one will be held on Wednesday, 2 May 2018 (between 7.00 pm and 9.00 pm) in The Parador Hotel, Ormeau Road, Belfast.  

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 consultant.  

You can drop into the outreach event any time between 7.00 pm and 9.00 pm - there is no need to make an appointment - to get advice on a one-to-one basis from our planning staff.  We can give advice on:

  • commenting on or objecting to a planning application;
  • development proposals in the local area;
  • how Belfast City Council deals with and decides on planning applications; and
  • any other planning issue.

We are also able to provide advice by telephone (9023 9444) or by email (
