    Thanks Pillman, I guess I will engage with my surveyor to walk me through the conditions to gain perpetuity. Because the developement is close to a semi busy road conditions 7 & 8 are welcomed, to be sure that the building does not suffer from vibrations or excesive noise.

    Many Thanks

    So you are saying if I submit No.7 I could make the existing application valid in perpetuity?
    No, that was not what was being stated.
    Another way to make the existing application valid in perpetuity, is to commence works on site, this could be digging the drainage trenches or foundations. You would need dated photographic evidence as a minimum or even better would be to have the work viewed by a building control inspector.
    You have to comply with the pre-development conditions before digging a single trench will accomplish the practical start of the development.

    Only then will that work be lawful as the start of operational development, which would be capable of extending the length of time during which the development can be completed.

    As soon as that first work is undertaken the planning permission is then extant, meaning that it can take as long to finish the house as the developer wants to take, because development has lawfully commenced with the benefit of the planning permission granted for it.

    Hi pilman

    I have emailed Planning Officer Regeneration and Planning Services and their reply:

    The only way to extend a planning application is to re-apply, the application will be assessed under the current policy, but the previous approval would bear weight in the consideration of the application.

    Another way to make the existing application valid in perpetuity, is to commence works on site, this could be digging the drainage trenches or foundations. You would need dated photographic evidence as a minimum or even better would be to have the work viewed by a building control inspector.

    From my knowledge on restrictive covenants they run with the land, yes maybe the reason they were put in place are no longer there but it would be risky for me to procede without clearing this matter up. I am reliant on the tribunal with all there knowledge to make the right decision for me.

    Apparently there has been an increasing amount of applications similar to mine where people are being held back by these kind of restictive covenants and lets face it the country needs new housing and self builds can be a big part of the drive to increase the housing stock. I think this is one of the reasons I got permission because my local council have been quite strict in the past.

    Many Thanks

    7 Prior to commencement of construction and demolition works, a detailed Construction Method Plan shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.
    That appears to be the first pre-construction condition, which requires an extremely high level of compliance.
    As does the second pre-construction condition.
    8 Prior to commencement of the development, details of a noise assessment of the external noise levels from transport and commercial sources (incl. reflected and reradiated noise where appropriate) completed in accordance with the standards of **** SPG 10 - Noise and Vibration shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.
    Seeing those conditions make me glad I retired as a property developer before matters became so complicated.

    It seems a as though political correctness has taken over the construction of even a single dwelling.

    A thought, when you say there is a Restrictive Covenant, I always wonder if its enforceable in that if the people who originally set the Restrictive Covenant no longer exist, who is there that would pay a firm of solicitors to take action for not observing the covenant.
    (IThere is a Private Road leading to one of my rentals. There is a Restrictive Covenant saying there is No Parking on the Private Road. The developer retained the land of the Private Road. The developer went into Liquidation 5 years ago. The Land Registry dont show the Private Road s having an owner

    The term used is “capture planning” so that it doesn’t expire

    What constitutes “commencement”?

    In order to lawfully ‘commence’ development it is necessary to satisfy the legal requirements in section 56(4) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. This says that “development is taken to be begun on the earliest date on which a material operation is carried out”. A material operation can include any works of construction, demolition, digging foundations, laying out or constructing a road and a material change in the use of the land.

    In practice, very minor works are usually sufficient to commence development. This could be as simple as putting in footings or even just pegging-out a roadway. Caution should be had though, as any works done must reflect what was actually permitted by the planning permission. This means crucially that any pre-commencement planning conditions must be complied with before works commence on site. Otherwise any works done to implement in accordance with section 56(4) may not be lawful and may then be subject to challenge by the local authority.

    If the planning permission contains ‘pre commencement’ conditions which are not likely to be complied with before the date on which the planning permission would (but for implementation) expire, then in the alternative an application could instead be made to vary the planning condition. This could be dealt with by way of a s.96a application (an application for a non-material amendment) to vary the wording of the relevant conditions to perhaps delay the date for compliance.
    Note the relevance of having all pre-conditions approved of, before any work can be legally shown to be the start of the development for the dwelling granted planning permission.

    I seem to recall that laying a water pipe with a tap at the site, or creating a hard surfaced access to the site is sufficient evidence of commencement of development..

    You just need to make a start, so a trench for some service pipe?

    started a topic Planning Permission

    Planning Permission

    Just over a year ago I was granted planning permission to build a 2 storey detached house in my side garden. Their is a restrictive covenant on what I can build in the side garden so I have had to make an application to the upper lands tribunal to have the restiction either modified or removed.

    My question is regarding the time I have left given to me too start building or I guess losing planning permission. I have not done the building regs yet until I have full certainty that I can actually remove the restriction.
    What is the least I could do to start the process of my granted permission so as to not lose it ?

    Do I have to do the building regs first?

    Can I dig out the area for the foundation?

    Many Thanks
