If your application has recently been determined that may not mean the end of the process. You may wish to appeal against a decision, apply for non-material minor amendments, apply for removal, variation of, or discharge conditions.
If you have been given permission subject to conditions these may require discharging prior to development commencing.
If permission has been granted and you wish to make minor alterations to the scheme i.e. resizing of a window, you can apply for a non-material minor amendment.
Discharge of Conditions
The majority of planning permissions have conditions attached. Some conditions require approval by the council before any development takes place, others can be discharged during the course of the development. All conditions relating to a planning permission can be viewed on the decision notice.
Non-material minor amendments
Following a grant of planning permission, it may be necessary to make amendments to the permission. If the alterations are considered to be 'non-material' then you can apply for a 'non-material amendment' to the original application as set out below.
Removal or variation of conditions
This application can be used if, under a previous planning permission, a condition was imposed that you wish to be amended or removed entirely.
Modify or discharge a section 106 Planning Application
