Planning Applications

Planning permission or planning consent is the permission required in the United Kingdom in order to be allowed to build on land, or change the use of land or buildings.

Planning title was granted for all pre-existing uses and buildings by the Town and Country Planning Act 1947. Since that date any new "development" has required planning permission. In order to request planning permission the applicant must submit a planning application to the relevant local authority
