Application For Extensions To The Time Limits For Implementing Planning Permissions And Associated Listed Building And/Or Conservation Area Consents
With effect from 1st October 2010 applicants may apply for a new planning permission and associated listed building and / or conservation area consents to replace an existing permission / consent which is in danger of lapsing, in order to extend the time limit for implementation.
When an application made on this form is granted approval, the result will be a new planning permission / consent with a new time limit or limits. The original permission will continue to exist whatever the outcome of the new application.
All sizes and types of development are eligible for this type of application. However, it is not possible to submit such an application if:
- The development has already commenced
- The permission or consent has already expired at the time of the application
- The permission or consent was granted after 1st October 2010
You cannot apply to replace planning permissions or consents in order to extend the time limit for implementation if they have already expired. In those cases, a new application would be needed.
Outline permissions can also be extended provided they are extant both on 1st October 2010 and at the date of application, and have not yet commenced. In cases where the reserved matters have already been approved, they do not have to be applied for again.
For the avoidance of doubt, an outline permission is extant if either:
