Village Hall Planning Permission Extension

New Member Posts: 4 Join Date: 11/06/16 Recent Posts

Hi All,

We are a Village Hall who had planning permission granted for a small kitchen extension in 2018. We are conscious that we are supposed to have commenced development within three years for the permission to remain valid. Before we approach the LPA, I wondered if there was any national direction that, given limitations on community buildings to run fundraising events etc due to COVID, that allowed extension of the three year limitation? Or just a general feel for how other LPAs were managing this? Is the general expectation that we would have to resubmit as usual?

Any thoughts appreciated.

If you haven't already, you should ask your Local Planning Authority what they think - but this might help:

 

2. Which planning permissions are extended?

Under section 93A of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, unimplemented planning permissions with time limits for implementation which were due to lapse between 19 August 2020 (when the provisions came into force) and 31 December 2020 are extended to 1 May 2021. This happens automatically, with no requirement to obtain Additional Environmental Approval.

In this guidance, a ‘time limit for implementation’ refers to a condition which has the effect that development pursuant to a planning permission, or works pursuant to a listed building consent, must be begun not later than a certain date. In most cases, a condition (or deemed condition) imposing a time limit for implementation is attached to a planning permission by or under section 91 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990; and to a listed building consent by or under section 18 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.

In addition, unimplemented planning permissions with time limits for implementation which passed between 23 March 2020 and 19 August 2020 are also restored and the time limit extended to 1 May 2021, subject to Additional Environmental Approval being granted. Further details of the Additional Environmental Approval process are set out below.
