This circular was published 5 June 1992, but dated 3 June.
Although issued originally to accompany an earlier General Development Order, this Circular remains the principal source of advice on how local planning authorities should fulfil the statutory requirement to publicise planning applications.
Good practice procedures are outlined, and local planning authorities are encouraged to consider doing more than the legal minimum to ensure that people find out about new planning applications.
Three types of publicity are recognised: notices in local newspapers, a publicly visible site notice, and neighbour notification to occupiers and owners of adjoining properties. ‘Major’ and ‘minor’ development and the requirement for environmental assessment are also discussed.
