Planning Law & Planning Agreements

Section 57 (1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 states that whenever any “development of land” is carried out, planning permission from the local planning authority will be required.

“Development” can include a wide range of activities from changing what the premises is used for to structural alterations or even demolition; all require approval from the local authority in the form of planning permission.

Planning Agreements

A planning agreement will usually be in the form of a separate document that lists specific restrictions and conditions that must be adhered to and/or completed, along with the permitted development.

This can include things like financial contributions to new utility infrastructure or road maintenance, both of which may be needed for the new development.

However, the law does impose limits on what the local planning authority can require the developer to do which ensures that the conditions imposed have to benefit the land being developed.
