Time limited planning permission (practice note)

Traditionally, all planning permissions have been subject to a condition that the permission expires after five years if the works have not been started. This SPG introduces a new ‘time limit’ of three years in order to try and encourage a higher take up rate of planning permissions and to reduce the extent of ‘land-banking’ which occurs when developers get planning permission but then leave the land undeveloped while the economy or land values improve.

The SPG also introduces a definition of ‘commencement’ in order to clarify what the department will consider as ‘works having commenced’ on a site.
