Look through the list of planning decisions. The council makes available the plans for all new developments that require planning permission. This may be an addition to your neighbor's home or the construction of a new school in your neighborhood. The list is available on our website under "Planning" and then "Planning & Building Control".
You can also contact the developer of any homes in your area who may have plans on file with the local planning department. Contact information for developers can be found on deed records at the county courthouse. If they do not have plans on file, this means they have not yet submitted an application to build there. There may be other developments in the area that are still under construction too!
Finally, you can ask someone who lives in the area how their planning application went. Some people choose to share this information so please take this into consideration before accusing them of doing something wrong.
If you want to check on applications that were submitted earlier than what is available online, you will need to visit the local government office. These offices are usually called Town Halls or Planning Offices. They are located throughout the county and often have staff members who can give you information about current and pending development projects in your area.
Do not underestimate the power of planning permission.
To obtain planning authorization, you must:
If you need planning authorization but do not get it, you will be in violation of the law. In the case of a planning violation, you must file a retroactive application with the local council. You will not need to take any additional action if this is successful. The local council will then review the case and may issue you a permit or may ask you to correct the violation.
A planning violation can result in a fine up to $50,000 or imprisonment for one year or both. Also, there are other consequences such as loss of license or demolition of buildings that are required by law to have official approval for their construction.
It is important to follow the rules set forth by planning departments in order to avoid any complications with your project. If you ignore planning regulations, there could be serious repercussions such as losing your building permit or being forced to shut down your operation entirely.
Planning permits are necessary for many projects including building additions, new homes, commercial spaces, etc. The process requires specific steps to be taken by applicants in order to receive authorization from local councils to construct these features.
If you ignore planning regulations, you could find yourself facing legal issues or even lose your business. It is important to work with professionals who know how agencies like municipalities work so you do not end up getting caught in a trap.
When asking for planning approval for a major project, you often have two choices: full planning permission or outline planning permission. If you look at the announcements on lampposts and council websites, you will see that large developers frequently pick outline planning approval. This means that they do not need to get local authority consent for every aspect of their plan, just the overall strategy. It also means that if they change their mind about some aspects of the scheme, they can apply again for planning permission without starting from scratch.
Full planning permission is given by the local planning authority for any development that they consider significant. This could be because it is big money that is being asked for, or because it will have a lot of impact on the environment. For example, a request for full planning permission would be needed for building anywhere other than residential properties a road or parking lot across farmland. Outline planning permission is only required where the developer wants to make changes to their proposal; for example, if they want to change the height of buildings or the placement of houses along a street. They can apply again for outline planning permission if they want to include more detail about their plans later.
Large projects usually fall into one of three categories: infrastructure, housing, and commercial/industrial.
