Will my agreement be sought before pre-commencement conditions are added?

For all decisions on planning applications made on or after 1st October 2018 the Council are required to seek your agreement to any pre-commencement conditions that they propose. In these cases, a letter will be sent asking for your permission and will include the details of the pre-commencement conditions that would be imposed. Our letter will include all the pre-commencement conditions that we anticipate at the time of writing but it may be that some of these conditions can be resolved through the submission of further details during the application process where this would not prejudice our determination period.


The agreement to conditions is sought without prejudice to the determination of the planning application. 

If no response or comments are received within 10 working days of our letter we are entitled to impose the conditions. This date is clearly stated in the letter

We welcome pre-application advice to enable early identification of the details required to be submitted as well as the identification of possible conditions. In addition, the submission of as much detail as possible with your formal planning application is encouraged so that pre-commencement conditions can be limited in number.
