Detail

With the exception of Appendix A (model conditions) which is retained, this publication has been cancelled and replaced by new planning practice guidance launched 6 March 2014 on an external website.

This circular brings up to date Circular 01/85 on the use of planning conditions. In particular, it reflects recent new guidance on the use of conditions in respect of transport, retail development, contaminated land, noise and affordable housing.

Other matters covered include use of conditions for design and landscape, lorry routeing, ‘granny’ annexes, staff accommodation, access for disabled people, holiday occupancy and nature conservation.

The circular also takes account of court decisions and includes an expanded appendix with model conditions. It records the policy that conditions should only be imposed where they are necessary, relevant to planning, relevant to the development to be permitted, enforceable, precise, and reasonable in all other respects.
