In addition to advice given in an earlier email, although you need to notify us before the start of formal consultation with statutory consultees that doesn't prevent any informal consultation or discussion with the statutory consultees before this point.

The IPC Guidance Note 2 was issued under both s.37(4) and s.50 of the Planning Act 2008, meaning it contains standards set by the Commission under s.37(5). Applicants have to comply with such standards (in line with s.55(3)(b)) and must give reasons for each respect in which guidance given under s.37(4) has not been followed (s.55(3)(d)). CLG has also issued guidance under s.50 in relation to pre-application stages to which applicants should have regard (see s.55(4)(c))
