Changing your planning application or approval

Changes to a planning proposal can be agreed before or after an application is decided. Making changes before the application is decided is a useful way to improve developments and secure approval where permission could otherwise be refused. Making changes after a proposal has been approved allows developers to respond to unexpected circumstances.

You can apply to make a change by applying for:

  • a pre-decision amendment
  • a non-material amendment
  • a minor material amendment
  • a variation of condition
  • a modification of planning obligations
  • a revised full application
The best way to avoid the need for changes is to ask for our pre-application advice​​
