Planning Permission

Planning Permission cover


The brand new title that sets out the law and practice of planning applications, appeals and challenges, particularly focussing on:
-The need for planning permission and the concept of development
-Permitted development rights
-Applying for planning permission and the consideration of applications by local authorities
-Planning appeals
-The role of the Secretary of State and the Welsh Ministers
-Planning permission granted by development orders

Dealing with why planning permission is needed, how it is obtained by permitted development, planning applications and orders, this essential new title begins with the concept of development, the need for planning permission and permitted development rights.

Planning applications are then considered at the local authority, appeal and call-in stages, with advice provided for developers, local authorities, interest groups and residents, setting out clearly how each can be involved in the process. High Court challenges are considered thoroughly.

Finally, complex questions regarding the interpretation and implementation of each area of this process are discussed.

What does it include?
Planning Permission analyses the legal rules and caselaw, including the 2015 orders. Practical advice is given on making and responding to applications, dealing with planning committees, Ministerial interventions, appeals and call-ins. The operation of the Planning Court is also addressed from the practitioner's perspective.

Helpful appendices include the relevant parts of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, the Development Management Procedure Order 2015, the General Permitted Development Order 2015, the Use Classes Order and the appeal rules and regulations.
