When planning permission is granted, the decision notice is issued which may specify conditions which have to be met to comply with the planning approval. Some of these conditions require further details to be submitted to the Council before work can start on site.

Examples might include:

  • giving details of drainage
  • details of external facing materials
  • work to improve the highway access are carried out before work starts.

If work starts without compliance with the terms of the conditions being met, the planning permission may become invalid.
