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.

Dersingham Road Garages - New Build - Granted The team at DAP are delighted to announce another successful planning application for a new-build scheme comprising of 7 no. flats with commercial (D1) floor space at ground floor across three storeys.   Earlier this month we received a unanimous 'yes' at Barnet Council's Planning Committee meeting in favour of the scheme. The officer recommendation was also for approval.   The site, a once thriving black cab repair garage, will be replaced with a residential-led scheme with basement level car parking and amenity space   This scheme presented its challenges and has been approved with conditions and a section 106 agreement. DAP oversaw the evolution of the scheme from its infancy at pre-application stage right the way through till the final plans as presented to the panning committee. Some of the challenges to overcome included the change of use of the site, the scale and massing of the proposal, its impact on neighbouring properties and the safe provision of car parking. There was no question that this was a tough site to develop in a low rise residential area. However, with our ability to work with Council planners and use policy effectively to justify our designs we made a solid case for the development to make a valuable contribution to this part of Dersingham Road.   We are delighted to advise our clients that this site is for sale with the benefit of planning permission. Should you require further information about the sale of this property please contact Jeremy Stein - jeremy@drawingandplanning.com       Mercham House 25-27 The Burroughs, Hendon, London, NW4 4AR P: 020 8202 3665 www.drawingandplanning.com Copyright © 2015 DAP Group.

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.
