Prior Approval downloadable forms update – November 2020

by on November 30, 2020

We have made some amendments to our Prior Approval PDF forms to better reflect the legislative process and wording. These changes are summarised in two sections below.

1. Prior Approval titles

The most recently added Prior Approval PDF form titles have been changed to ‘Application for prior approval of a proposed:’ They were previously titled ‘Application to determine if prior approval is required for a proposed:’

This is to correctly reflect the legislative process: these proposals always require prior approval, where others require an initial determination from the Local Planning Authority (LPA) to see if prior approval is required.

Titles have also been updated on our paper forms section. Links to the forms have remained the same. The changes are to the following:

Application for prior approval of a proposed:

  • New dwellinghouses on detached blocks of flats
  • New dwellinghouses on detached buildings in commercial or mixed use
  • New dwellinghouses on terrace buildings in commercial or mixed use
  • New dwellinghouses on terrace buildings in use as dwellinghouses
  • New dwellinghouses on detached buildings in use as dwellinghouses
  • Enlargement of a dwellinghouse by construction of additional storeys
  • Demolition of buildings and construction of new dwellinghouses in their place.

2. Prior approval form for ‘Enlargement of a dwellinghouse by construction of additional storeys’

Amendments have been made to this form. They are as follows:

  • The ‘Description of Proposed Works, Impacts and Risks’ question has been updated to include questions to request the current and proposed height of the house – information required by LPAs to carry out their legislative duty to notify adjoining premises of the proposals.
  • The question on the ‘impacts on the amenity of any adjoining premises’ has been updated to better reflect the wording of the legislation.

All forms can be downloaded from our paper forms section.
