Application for planning permission for relevant demolition in a conservation area

planning permission for relevant demolition in a conservation area

Specific Information Requirements

Form and Certificates
The relevant 1APP form and Certificates are available from the National Planning Portal

Plans
These must clearly identify buildings and structures to be demolished. Photographs would assist

  • Location Plan "A plan that identifies the land to which the application relates" at an identified metric scale showing sufficient roads or buildings on land adjoining the site to ensure the exact location of the site is clear. The site should be edged clearly in red and a blue line should be drawn around other land owned by an applicant adjoining or near the application site. Please note that the guidance available from the National Planning Portal in relation to the red line plan may not be applicable in all cases,  for example  there may be no  need to include the access to the public highway if no development is taking place on the access. The normal rule is that the red line should include all land where development (requiring planning permission) is actually taking place.
  • Site (Block) Plan At an identified metric scale showing north, the development in relation to site boundaries and existing buildings with written dimensions including those to boundaries. (the full footprint of adjacent properties would greatly assist in determining the relationship to the existing buildings & detailing the hardstanding & parking is also helpful if relevant to the application ) include the footprint of the building to be demolished. (Photographs of the building to be demolished are also helpful)

Document Type

Circumstances when document should be submitted

Heritage Statement

For applications within or adjacent to a conservation area or affecting a Listed Building, an assessment of the impact of the development on the character and appearance of the area may be required.

Biodiversity Statement

All applications where the bio-diversity checklist has been correctly completed and answered yes in any of the categories. All applications within of adjacent to a local or national nature reserve (SINC) or SSSI and where there is a reasonable likelihood of a protected species.

Tree Assessment

All applications for development affecting protected trees.

General Information
Two copies of plans, forms, certificates and supporting statements are required to support any paper based submission to be numbered so they can be referred to on the decision notice.

All Plans must be to an identified metric scale (normally 1:50 or 1:100) must state the original paper size, show a north point and/or identify which direction elevations face and be named in a logical manner. When proposing new development they must include a scale bar and key dimensions.

Prior to submitting an application you are strongly advised to make use of the pre application advice service we offer.

As part of our registration process both our Administrative Team and our Development Control Team Leaders inspect applications received in detail. Requests for plans will be proportionate to the nature and scale of the proposal and information will only be required that adds to an understanding of the proposal. This being the case it would assist if an applicant/agent advises as to why they feel their submission is adequate and reflects the matter to hand.

Further guidance on 1App is available on the National Planning Portal
