Q&As

If works (removal of a roof) are carried out in satisfaction of the pre-commencement conditions contained in a planning permission and the permission is later quashed, do the works carried out prior to the quashing need to be reversed or should works simply cease at the point of quashing? If the works are required to be reversed, is a new planning permission needed for this?

The following Planning Q&A produced in partnership with Rosalind Andrews of Harrison Clark Rickerbys provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:

  • If works (removal of a roof) are carried out in satisfaction of the pre-commencement conditions contained in a planning permission and the permission is later quashed, do the works carried out prior to the quashing need to be reversed or should works simply cease at the point of quashing? If the works are required to be reversed, is a new planning permission needed for this?

Where a planning permission has been quashed following a legal challenge, the planning status of the site reverts back to the position it was in immediately prior to that planning permission being granted.

This means that there is a live planning application and the local planning authority will need to make the decision again as to whether to grant or refuse planning
