Non-material amendments to a planning permission (S.96A)

Last Modified December 11, 2014

Following the granting of planning permission, you may want to make amendments to the permission.

Where these are non-material, you can use this form to apply. Whether or not a proposed amendment is non-material will depend on the circumstances of the case - a change which may be non-material in one case could be material in another. There is no statutory definition of non-material under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (As amended), but we must be satisfied that the amendment sought is non-material in order to approve it in line with the requirements of our constitution.

If you are not sure, you may wish to seek pre-application advice from us. If a non-material amendment application is successful, no new planning permission is created. The original planning permission still stands and should be read in conjunction with the decision letter issued with the application.

To apply for a non-material amendment to a planning permission, apply online at the Planning Portal or download this form:
