Frequently Asked Questions

It is often important to instruct a Solicitor to interpret a planning permission, including as to what the document actually gives permission for, the requirements of a condition/s which are attached to the permission and how they might limit the use or development. For example:

·       A failure to comply with conditions requiring something to be done prior to commencement can mean that any works done under a planning permission are unlawful. Understanding which conditions might have that effect can be particularly important, in understanding whether the permission has been lawfully implemented – if it has not been, the permission may have expired and any existing works rendered unlawful.

·        a condition may restrict the use of the land or prevent reliance on certain permitted development rights

The interpretation of planning permission can be complex and it is important, especially when buying, selling and leasing property to fully understand what the permission allows, in order to understand whether a new occupier/purchaser might require a fresh planning permission for their proposed activity.
