Step 2: ‘outline’ planning permission
‘Outline’ planning permission looks at the general principles of how a site can be developed, requiring fewer details than full planning permission. This might be an option for extensive builds, so you can get an idea of whether the proposed development may be approved before ploughing funds into intricate designs. Alternatively, you may be buying land to sell on.
Once outline planning permission is granted, a ‘reserved matters’ application, which goes into further detail, must be submitted within the next three years.
It’s worth noting that there are some instances where you may be able to use your Permitted Development (PD) rights instead of obtaining planning permission, which will save you the hassle of dealing with your local planning department. PD rights give most houses automatic planning consent for a range of alterations, and they still apply within most conservation areas and even to most listed buildings.
