What types of planning application are there? (don’t worry we’ll tell you which ones you need)
- 1. Full Planning Application – This is the most common type of planning application. The full details of a development proposal are submitted for consideration, including detailed drawings showing the site and the work you plan to do.
- 2. Householder Application – This is specifically for householders who need permission to carry out work to their home or garden area. All details of the development proposal are submitted in one planning application.
- 3. Outline Application – This helps decide whether the scale and nature of a proposed development would be acceptable before a fully detailed proposal is put forward. This type of permission is usually for larger schemes, for example, housing developments.
- 4. Reserved Matters Application – Where outline planning permission has been granted, an application for approval of the details, or Reserved Matters, must be submitted to the planning authority for approval before the development starts. A Reserved Matters application must be submitted for approval within three years of an Outline application being approved. This will typically include information about the layout, access, scale and appearance of the development.
