Planning applications: revised plans
The department often receives requests to amend the terms of a planning permission after consent has been granted. This can happen for a number of reasons:
unforeseen requirements arising from the building bye-laws
changes in site conditions
a change of mind by the applicant
It is vital that revisions are agreed by the Planning Section of the Department or the Environment Department, in writing, before they are carried out.
Very minor changes (such as a change in material) may be able to be dealt with by letter.
However, because planning is an open process, the majority of changes will need to be addressed through the submission of a revised planning application.
This practice note aims to provide information about how the planning system's protocols and procedures operate in reference to revised plans.
