Retrospective Planning Permission - Planning enforcement notice.


 

 

What Is Retrospective Planning Consent? Do I need Retrospective Planning Permission? 


Retrospective Planning Permission

 

If building works start and planning permission is required and has not been obtained, a retrospective planning permission will be required to regularise the development. A 'retrospective planning application' is essentially an application that is submitted in order to obtain planning permission for the development.

 

An owner or developer should never rely on a retrospective planning permission application to get unauthorised development approved.  Anyone doing this is taking a considerable risk and may face formal enforcement action.

Planning Reforms Going Down a Bad Road, Says Motion, 2013-11-10

Sir Andrew Motion has accused the government’s planning reforms of having a direct correlation to the increase in vandalism of the countryside. Sir Andrew is a rural campaigner and a former poet laureate, turned activist when it comes to planning reforms that could potentially harm the environment and the landscapes of the United Kingdom. Sir Andrew has insisted that the current planning reforms are allowing too much of the beautiful landscapes in the country to be ploughed over and replaced with buildings and developments. Sir Andrews main argument is that one day the landscapes will be no more than memories, pages in a book. The changes made by the coalition to the planning permissions have caused nearly all development to be seen not only as acceptable, but as a good thing for the country. The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) is concerned about how the relaxation of planning laws is failing local communities and causing harm to local landscapes and is urging the public and politicians to make moves for change. Sir Andrew made his comments publicly in the most recent report from the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE). The report cited the government as being desperate and found that the loosened planning controls may have helped the government to fuel economic growth but it has been done at the expense of the countryside. One of the report’s main target arguments showed that the reforms the government has made to planning permissions are currently posing a threat to national parks and other landscapes throughout the countryside in England. The ministers were accused of making repeated promises to continue protection for these landscapes and parks but the desecration of these lands has continued. Sir Andrew indicated that English countryside is of invaluable importance to the history and future of England and that development in these areas is unacceptable and unnecessary. Sir Andrew did indicate that he does not believe that the government is purposely attempting to ruin the landscapes of the countryside. However, he indicated in the same comments that inadequate protections from development in these areas means that someday there may not be any countryside left to enjoy, and all the history and culture will be lost with them. The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) and Sir Andrew are calling on politicians to change the reforms once again and give added protection to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs), National Parks, and other landscapes that are valued locally by the communities in which they are located. The push comes just after many ministers have indicated the necessity to build on these lands and to continue development as much as possible. One of the current projects highlighted by the report from the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) shows a plan by the government to put a new major road through the Peak District. Another plan highlighted in the report shows the plan to build multiple mobile homes in the Yorkshire Dales.

If work has gone underway on a construction project, or if an infrastructure has been added to a residence that requires planning permission, a retrospective planning permission application may need to be filed to ensure that the development is regularized. It is important that if planning permission was not filed before the project went underway that a retrospective planning permission application is filed in order to avoid legal actions.

 

What is retrospective planning consent? This type of consent is needed in order to alter or change the infrastructure of a home or dwelling. While, some things do not require planning permission in order to be altered, there are still a lot of changes to a home that will require permission from the planning authorities.

 

Before doing any work on a home, it is vital that you ask yourself, do I need retrospective planning permission or planning permission in general. If you are unsure if your project requires permission, it is up to you to get in contact with the local planning authority. Failure to get the permission you require can result in legal actions, which can force you to remove the added infrastructure that was constructed onto your residence. If the project was started before getting planning permission you need retrospective planning permission.
