Further information

The council’s planner may require more information in the form of a specialist report, clarification of submitted information, request a change in the design, omit or add in a design change. Usually if the information is dealt with properly, this can lead to a decision to grant permission.

Refusal Of Planning Permission

The council’s decision may be based on the development plan or not in keeping with the zoning of the area. Reasons will be listed from correspondence from the council outlining the issues.
