Full permission is normally required for change of use, developments in conservation areas and for developments that affect listed buildings. It also applies to industrial and commercial developments.
An application for full permission should contain detailed information on the proposed development, including the use, position and design of any buildings- extensions, materials, access and landscaping. A full planning permisssion may be granted with conditions. For example the local planning authority may:
- grant planning permission only for a specified period
- request for details and samples to be used in the construction work or
- details of parking arrangements on the site.
A planning authority should only impose conditions that are necessary and effective. They must take steps to ensure that the conditions do not cause an unreasonable burden to the applicant.
