The new prior approval procedure means a developer has to provide some basic information about a proposed extension and involves consultation with immediate neighbours.
We will make a decision within 42 days.
Requests are free of charge.
As part of the prior notification the developer must give us the following information:
We will not accept applications if any of the above information is missing.
You do not have to apply using the application forms, but we think it is the best way to make sure that all the information is submitted.
Note: Scaled plans are not needed by law, but we suggest you send them in, including details about windows and loss of any trees, so neighbours know all the details. Accurate, scaled plans may also help to avoid objections from neighbours on the grounds of lack of information.
Where the correct information has not been supplied the application will be refused.
