Five Com­mon Plan­ning Con­di­tions

Homebuilding & Renovating - - THE BRIEF -

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.
