Five Common Planning Conditions
time Limit all domestic planning permissions typically include a condition stating that development must commence within three years of the date it was granted. Materials Local authorities often want to see a sample of the cladding materials you hope to use as a condition of planning — for instance, the roof tiles and bricks. Trees If trees are present on site in close proximity to the build or covered by a Tree Preservation Order, you may be required to take meas-ures to protect them. Drainage Planning applications have to detail the dis-posal of both surface and foul drainage. You may have to submit subsequent detailed drawings. PD Rights Some approvals may restrict the scope of your property's Permit-ted Development rights — or have them taken away altogether as a condition.
