Apply for planning permission

Apply to discharge planning conditions

Obtaining planning permission is often not the end of your involvement with the Council. 

Planning permission may be approved with conditions that require the further agreement of details by the Council prior to a start being allowable on site. 

These may include:

  • advising how long you have to implement a scheme
  • identifying the approved drawing numbers
  • requiring the submission of further details for approval, such as materials or large scale drawings

When a condition requires the submission of further details, this is referred to as a Discharge of Condition application, or a DOC application.

If this is relevant to you, check when this needs to be done. For example, the wording of the condition may require the details to be submitted to AND approved prior to the commencement of development.   

Thank you. You response is appreciated.
