In some cases when planning permission, listed building consent or advertisement consent is granted, the conditions set out on the decision notice require no further details to be agreed. In other words, the conditions require you to implement the permission/consent in accordance with details already agreed within the original application. In such cases work can commence (though it is always advisable to check if other consents are required prior to work starting, such as building regulations).
However, in many cases, you will have been granted permission or consent for your proposal but we have requested specific details to be provided, which need to be agreed with us.
There are two stages to this process. Both stages require the submission of a discharge of condition form and an associated fee, and both have an eight week determination period:
The first stage is the submission of details. The details are considered directly by a planning officer or indirectly via the appropriate consultee (eg the highway authority). You will then receive the decision in writing, or be asked for further details prior to the decision being issued.
The second stage is the formal discharging of conditions once the development has been completed to check that the development has been implemented in accordance with the approved details.
