Retrospective Planning Applications
What is a Retrospective Planning Application?
A Retrospective Planning Application is required for all developments which are in the process of being built, or are already built, and have not been granted planning permission. This application once planning permission is granted will legalise and regularise the development. Until planning permission is granted, the council can issue an enforcement notice to return the development into its former existence. This can be a costly and long experience, and it is strongly recommended that a home owner or developer apply for planning permission before carrying out building works.
In the event that planning permission was not applied for, 4D Planning Consultants are able to prepare a Retrospective Planning Application on your behalf, and help you get the required planning permission.
How do I apply for Retrospective Planning Permission?
Council enforcement officers will only encourage an owner or developer to make a retrospective application if they consider that they may be granted planning permission for the development. However, enforcement officers can only advise on this. The retrospective application will be dealt with by one of the planning officers in exactly the same way that they deal with any application for planning permission. 4D Planning Consultants use their expertise and knowledge to give the best advice to our clients, and prepare a professional and convincing application to get you planning permission.
