In addition, where Ownership Certificates B, C or D have been completed, notice(s) as required by planning regulations must be given and/or published in accordance with the regulations.

Additional information to be submitted with an Outline Application -

Government legislative changes now require an increased level of detail to be submitted with outline applications, when taken alongside the national requirement to submit a Design and Access Statement. As a minimum, outline applications will now include information on:

·       Use – the use or uses proposed for the development and any distinct development zones within the site identified

·       Amount of development – the amount of development proposed for each use 

·       Indicative access points – an area or areas in which the access point or points to the site will be situated

All submitted plans must be to a recognised scale, plans that include the words “Do Not Scale” will not be registered.

Advice for hard copy applications -

Only 1 set of paper documents needs to be provided for all applications except majors, where 2 copies will be required if there is a Parish or Town Council. Extra copies may be requested for large scale applications.


                          –   Indicative site sections and elevation drawings (e.g. at a scale of 1:200 or  1:500) showing ground levels

PLEASE NOTE: Information provided on the application form and accompanying drawings and documents will be made available on the internet.
