Variation of condition

When planning permission is granted the decision notice may include conditions which must be met. If an applicant considers that a condition needs to be removed or changed they can apply asking us.

Apply to remove or vary a condition using the Planning Portal website
Include a written statement to show why you want to vary or remove the condition. When sending us an application it is important that you make this clear in the description.  For example:

“Variation of condition 3 if planning permission 10/P/1234/F (erection of retail unit off St Marks Road) to allow the retail unit to open until 11pm Monday to Friday instead of 10pm”.

A fee is charged to vary a condition. More than one condition may be changed on the same form and for the same fee. Fees can be seen on planning application fees.

We will decide your application within eight weeks. In deciding the application we will only consider the conditions. If approved we will issue a new decision notice and may decide to add, remove, or change other conditions as well as the changes asked for.
