Pre-decision changes

Changes can improve a proposal and help make a scheme acceptable. A change can be made with or without our request. 

Notes on making changes

Please note, the following may apply:

  • A new application will be needed if we decide a change is substantially different from what was originally sent
  • When we ask for changes we will normally give you a deadline to send us your changes
  • If information has not been sent to us in time, the original application is likely to be refused
  • If you change the site boundary you need to make sure the ownership certificate sent is still valid

As a result of a change:

  • we may changed the development’s description - if you disagree with this, please contact us 
  • a 14 day re-consultation might be needed

What to include

When sending changes to us, please include:

  • a covering letter to explain what has been changed
  • updated plans and make sure plan reference numbers are changed to show it is a different version
