Planning permissions do not last forever. Sections 91 and 92 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (TCPA 1990) require that every planning permission must contain a planning condition limiting the time within which the permission can be implemented. Local planning authorities (LPAs) have discretion under TCPA 1990, ss 91 and 92 to grant planning permission for such periods as they consider appropriate. The usual position is that:
in the case of a full planning permission, development must be commenced within three years (in England) or five years (in Wales) of the grant of permission unless a planning condition states otherwise
in the case of an outline planning permission relating to land in England, any application for the approval of a reserved matter must be made not later than the expiration of three years beginning with the date of the grant of outline planning permission and the development to which the permission relates must be begun not later than the expiration of two years from the final approval
