Condition Monitoring on New Developments

When planning permission is granted for new development often this permission will be subject to a number of conditions.

These conditions are often imposed to regulate certain aspects of an approved scheme and are an important element in the process. Were it not for these conditions it is possible that planning permission may not have been granted. Conditions can also serve to add the finishing touches to a scheme by making it more attractive, adding value and making it more saleable so everyone (you and the wider community) benefits.

The Enforcement team actively and reactively monitor the conditions on a number of planning permissions to ensure that these are adhered to by developers and in some cases subsequent occupiers/owners of the site. 

Often developers are required to discharge one or a number of conditions as part of a planning permission. In this instance a formal written request to discharge this/these condition(s) will need to be made to the Council. You are encouraged to use the 'Approval of Details Reserved by Condition' Application Form to do this. This request should be accompanied by the correct fee as detailed below:

  • £28.00 for an application to discharge of one or more conditions relating to extending or altering a dwellinghouse or other development within the curtilage of a dwellinghouse; or,
  • £97.00 for an application to discharge one or more conditions relating to all other development.
