Outline planning permission application checklists

An application for planning permission need not supply all the necessary details of the proposed development. The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 (as amended) allows for 'outline permissions' to be granted by the LPA. An application for outline permission allows the applicant to test the principle of the development with the LPA without incurring the costs of preparing a full and detailed design. An outline application will 'reserve matters' for consideration at a later date.

This is a checklist of items needed for an outline planning permission application, including both the compulsory national requirements and the possible local requirements.
