The applicant or agent will be notified in writing of the decision which will be one of the following:
- permitted with reasons but no conditions
- permitted with reasons but condition(s) to be complied with
- refused, listing the reasons
It is important that the applicant or their agent studies the decision notice as certain conditions require further matters to be submitted and approved before development can start, for example materials to be used or landscaping details. Failure to comply with such conditions could result in the Council taking legal action against the applicant.
If you are unhappy about a refusal or any condition attached, you should arrange to discuss the issues with the case officer before appealing against the decision. Where the application is refused, it may be possible to re-submit a revised scheme without payment of a fee.
Notes on how to appeal are always sent with a notice of refusal. More details on how to appeal can also be found by following 'The Decision and Appeals' link.
