Planning Advice Outreach (Belfast)

Our next planning advice drop-in session will be held on Wednesday, 24 August 2022 at our offices at 2 Downshire Place, Belfast between 12 noon 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 in to the advice session any time between 12 noon and 4.00 pm to get one-to-one confidential advice from one of our planners.  There is no need to make an appointment (but please call us in advance if you would like to book an appointment for a specific time).  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 email ( or by telephone (9023 9444 or 07783 649288).
