Introduction

Apply for a new planning permission to extend the time limit for implementation of an existing planning permission. This can also be used to replace a consent for an associated listed building or conservation area to extend the time limit for implementation.

Due to recent changes in legislation, a new procedure and application form has been introduced by central government. The forms will extend the time limit for implementation of a planning permission and replace associated listed building or conservation area consents to extend the time limit for implementation. For more information please see the Downloads section.

It is not possible to use these new procedures where the development has already commenced, where the permission or consent has already expired at the time of application, or where the permission/consent was granted after 1 October 2009. In those cases, a new application would have to be made. It is also not possible to use this procedure solely to extend the time limit for submission of reserved matters. Applicants would have to seek a replacement for the outline permission itself, which if successful would create new time limits for the submission of reserved matters and for subsequent implementation.
