    Invalid planning condition

    If a planning condition appears invalid is it possible to challenge so it has no effect?

    We were told we could apply for a development certificate but would prefer to remove the condition.

    Best to speak with the planning officer - it might be that the condition is a generic condition, and appears on first reading to be invalid, but in fact is a coverall that can be applied to various circumstances.


      Thank you.


        In what way does the condition appear invalid?

          I want to turf my lawn, plant shrubs and erect a 500 mm high wooden picket fence.
          I have been shielding due to health issues and tenants who rent in adjacent properties let their dogs foul on my lawn.
          I want to use the garden safely, its part of my leasehold and deed. The lease says...

          Why not ask the freeholders permission? That would seem the most pragmatic solution....

          Does this apply to conservatory or orangery at the back of the house as well? Do we need some kind of permission or certificate before/after the development if its not affecting any of your neighbours? Thanks

          Take photos and write to the Chief Planning Officer giving full details and say why you are unsatisfied at the lack of consultation and the outcome. If you don't get satisfaction write to the Planning Inspectorate - find out where yours is. If you win your case the council have to pay to have the...

          Dear All,

          The end of my garden backs onto a private access lane. At the bottom of a majority of gardens there are garages that back onto the lane the garages are between 3-3.5 meters in height. This is mirrored on the opposite side of the lane.

          The house opposite mine...

          Dear All,

          Many thanks for your replies. After talking to the planning office it appears that three neighbours did receive notice via post back in 2019. They did not think it necessary to check the height mentioned in the plans .I find it strange that I did not even though I am obviously...

          I think that is disgraceful. I help run a community forum that polices planning app notices stringently...amongst other things.

          Your lease includes the garden. Unless the lease provides otherwise, this will include all the airspace over the ground. Accordingly, you have complete control over the airspace which will be above the proposed extension.
