When Planning Permission Is Granted Or Refused
After The Decision Has Been Made
The conditions may require you to submit further information before the development can start and/or may impose specific permanent controls on how the development or use of land is carried out. Ensure that you understand those requirements before you commit yourself to carrying out the development.
If you have not obtained the necessary approval required by a condition before you start, it will be unlawful to proceed with the development. When you write seeking approval to details required to be submitted to comply with conditions, we aim to reply to agree the details, seek further information or suggest changes within fifteen working days. If we are unable to reach agreement on the necessary details, you may appeal to the DCLG, in the way described in our pages entitled "Planning Appeals".
If you wish to make changes to your plans after permission has been granted, we may be able to agree to these without the need for you to submit a new application if they are minor changes. If you send us revised plans, we aim to write to you within ten working days to tell you whether they are acceptable or not or whether a new application is needed.
Before commencing any form of development you should contact our Building Control Department to find out if Building Regulation Approval is required.
