Non-material amendment following a grant of planning permission

Important notes

Applications for non-material amendment following a grant of planning permission should be submitted in accordance with the requirements in this checklist (reviewed 12 September 2014). If not, the application may be declared invalid and not determined or processing may be delayed.

If the application is submitted electronically one copy of the form and each of the drawings, plans and documentation will be required but 2 copies (1 original and 1 copy will be required if the application is submitted in paper form. If samples of materials are submitted, only one sample of each of the materials will be required.

Drawings should include information clearly stating the original size of the paper and include a scale bar indicating a minimum 0-10 metres. This is to enable them to be accurately read online. Plans marked with "do not scale" or any similar phrase will be returned as unacceptable as for planning purposes we must be able to scale from all drawings.

  • Completed application form.
  • The correct fee.

  • The applicant will need to provide sufficient information to enable the Local Planning Authority to identify the previous grant of planning permission and the associated condition(s) which the applicant is seeking to vary. The applicant will not be required to provide copies of the application but it will assist the LPA's consultation and determination procedures if they provide copies of the original drawings. When developers are applying to vary the approved plans they should clearly indicate the full extent of the proposed changes across the site.

  • Supporting information required in relation to the changes sought. In most cases it will be appropriate to submit a supplementary statement to be read in conjunction with the documents that supported the original application.
