Architectural Planning Conditions

A planning consent gives permission for you to build your project, in theory. However, there may be a number of planning restrictions added to the consent, known as 'planning conditions'. These conditions may relate to a number of things, including: 

  • Hard and soft landscaping
  • Proposed Materials
  • Access Requirements
  • Further Detailed Drawings - such as window details or door details
  • Ecology 
  • Archaeology
  • Contamination
  • Removal of Permitted Development Rights - this can affect any future proposals on the land

Let's Design Architecture tries to provide the planning department with as much information as is available with the initial application in order to avoid conditions where possible. However, if your planning permission has any conditions on it, sometimes they will need to be cleared before commencement of development. In this case, a further application is required to discharge the conditions. In some cases a 'variation of conditions' application may be made to re-word an existing condition. 

Let's Design Architecture is experienced in dealing with local planning authorities

Let's Design Architecture has experience making these types of application, including collecting any information required from third parties and submitting it together with the application.
