Prior Notification Applications
|Information required and when required||Information Required/Guidance|
Prior notifications are not applications for planning permission but are confirmation of the intent to take up permitted development rights. Part 3 of Schedule 2 of the General Permitted Development Order sets out various types of development that require prior approval.
These include agricultural or forestry developments, demolition, telecommunications developments and some changes of use.
Prior notifications are subject to National Requirements as follows:
Please note the GPDO requires certain documents and evidence for some types of prior approval.
Although prior notifications are not subject to Local Requirements there may be additional information required in order to fully consider the notification. This could include structural surveys, ecological surveys or contaminated land reports.
For Part 6 agricultural notifications, it is helpful to show the entire land holding on a plan and detail the agricultural activities that take place.
