Amending an Approved Planning Application

Making amendments to planning permission that has already been approved

There are two types of amendment that can be proposed to a planning application that's already been approved.

Non-material amendments

A non-material amendment to an approved scheme can be summarised as:

'an insignificant variation in a detail and details of an approved scheme which does not raise any new issues which would warrant the submission of a fresh planning application'

To apply for this, you would need to complete and submit the form for 'Non Material Amendment' which you can find next to the Amendments section on our Planning Application Forms page. The completed form should be returned to us, accompanied by plan(s) clearly showing the changes proposed, and the appropriate fee.

If you're not sure if your proposal will be accepted as a non-material amendment, please contact us.

Material amendments

You can seek a material amendment to vary or remove conditions associated with a planning permission, where there is a relevant condition on the approved permission that can be varied.

To apply for a Material Amendment, you would need to complete and submit the form and checklist for 'Removal or Variation of Condition (S73) following grant of planning permission'. You can find this form and checklist next to the 'Reserved Matters and Conditions' section on our Planning Application Forms page.
This submission should be accompanied by plan(s) clearly showing the changes proposed and the appropriate fee.
