Archaeological advice

We are currently experiencing intermittent technical issues whilst migrating to a new Planning system, please accept our apologises during this period.

Pre-application Advice

The pre application and enquiry service has TEMPORARILY been SUSPENDED due to the high volume of applications we are receiving. Pre applications for major and strategic developments will continue to be accepted. 

If you are seeking advice on whether planning permission would be required please see our planning guides.

Alternatively you can submit a certificate of lawfulness application. 

From the 1st of May 2018 Staffordshire County Council will be operating a pre-application system whereby archaeological advice is provided upfront and prior to the submission of an application.

Developers can access the pre-application system via the County Council website, with all orders and payments made online.
