Do you call a car park before you go?
Do you call someone before you call round to their house?
Sometimes you might drop by on the way past an see if they are in?
But do you call Tesco, Asda etc, or a shopping center before you go?
This is why I advocate that aerodromes in the AIP should not be PPR, and an aerodrome that considers itself "open for business" should be in the AIP and not require PPR. This stuff about briefing for circuits could be dealt with if the AIP had VFR approach plates.
PPR should be about private airstrips.
