Amendments to planning applications

Amendment to planning applications

If you wish to make changes to an approved development, you need to have your proposed changes approved.

We advise that you discuss your proposed changes with the planning officer who dealt with your original planning application. Your planning officer will advise you which of the following 3 approval procedures is appropriate for your development.

We can no longer approve proposed changes to an approved development by an exchange of letters. Legislation which came in on 1 October 2009 means there are new processes involved to approve changes to approved developments. They were previously commonly known as minor amendments.

There are now 3 ways to seek approval for changes to an approved development. They are listed in this series of pages.
