Obtaining Prior Approval for Permitted Development

Certain types of development are granted planning permission by national legislation without the need to submit a planning application. This is known as ‘Permitted Development’. In order to be eligible for these permitted development rights, each class of development specified within the legislation has associated limitations and conditions that proposals must comply with. One such condition on certain classes of development is the need to submit an application to the Local Planning Authority for its Prior Approval. This allows the Local Planning Authority to consider proposals and their likely impacts in regard to certain factors specified within the legislation and how these may be mitigated. SM Planning can guide you through this process to ensure all specified matters and requirements are addressed to maximise the prospects of obtaining a grant of Prior Approval from the Local Planning Authority.
