20. What are the conditions attached to my planning approval?

All planning approvals have conditions added to them relating to the approved plans and time constraints for commencing the development. Some applications will have additional pre-commencement conditions, where additional information will need to be submitted in another application prior to work commencing on site. Similarly, a prior-occupation condition would need to be submitted for the same reasons, but before the development is fully completed and in use. Often, we are informed of any additional conditions which will be attached to the approval, and we can try and satisfy them during the initial application, which removes the cost and delay of having to submit additional applications. In some cases, we are not informed until the decision is made, or it may not be possible to produce the information required in a timely manner for it to be included in the original application.
