In some circumstances, planning officers may impose conditions on the project in order to enhance the quality of development or enable a development to proceed when it would have been otherwise refused. Local authority states that conditions are only imposed when they are:
– Relevant to planning
– Relevant to the development that will be permitted
– Reasonable in all other aspects
Conditions are also imposed on certain projects when the local authority may need further information that was not already submitted in the planning application. For example, the specification of windows or colour of render would need to be submitted and approved by the council as a form of condition compliance before the windows are fitted or the render applied.
It is often a straightforward process to comply with any conditions imposed and here at Richards Architectural we have experience of taking conditions into account.
