The following Planning guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Planning Practice Guidance on the use of planning conditions (the PPG) stresses that local planning authorities (LPAs) should limit the use of conditions requiring the approval of further matters after full (as opposed to outline) planning permission has been granted, other than where it will clearly assist with the efficient and effective delivery of development. The PPG advises that where it is justified, LPAs should impose conditions requiring submission and approval of further details only in respect of aspects of the development that are not fully described in the application. See Practice Note: Planning conditions—key points for further information on conditions generally.
Nevertheless, it is common for full planning permissions to impose conditions requiring further approval of details. To a certain extent this is viewed as favourable by developers, as it enables developers to leave some aspects of a development to be finalised after the principle of the development is established, helping with cash flow and timelines during the application stage. However, developers and LPAs should aim to impose fewer conditions where the planning application contains full detail relating to the proposed development. This also helps to ensure the quality of the development is maintained and that there is sufficient information to allow for the proper consideration of the development.
