Amend or extend a planning application

Extend an application

Applications can be kept alive via a simplified application procedure. This applies to all planning applications that:

  • are extant on 1 October 2010, and
  • have not been commenced at the date of application, and
  • were granted permission prior to the 1 October 2010

This also covers listed building/conservation area consents which meet the above criteria and are associated with an eligible planning permission which is also being extended.

Outline permissions can also be extended under this power, provided they are extant both on 1 October 2010 and have not yet commenced at the date of application. An outline permission is extant if either:

  • the time limit for submission of reserved matters has not yet expired; or
  • reserved matters' applications were all submitted in accordance with the time limit for submission of reserved matters, and the time limit for commencement has not yet expired

Application forms and guidance notes can be accessed via Planning Portal.

Fees are:

(a) if the application is a householder application - £57

(b) if the application is an application for major development - £575

(c) in any other case - £195

There is no fee for the element of this application which is in respect of a listed building or conservation area consent.

Amend an application

It is possible to apply to make non-material amendments to existing planning permissions under s.96A of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. Following a grant of planning permission, it may be necessary to make small amendments to the permission, for example changing a finish or moving a door or window.

Application forms and guidance notes can be accessed via Planning Portal.

The fees are:

(a) if the application is a householder application - £28

(b) in any other case - £195
