Retrospective Planning Permission

In certain circumstances Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) will accept planning applications for work already commenced/completed.

This is often controversial and needs careful handling to avoid civil action for breach of planning control. It should be noted that an application in retrospect is treated as if the development had not taken place and the outcome can go either way. Expertise is required to ensure the best and most timely outcome.

Studio Charrette can advise on all stages of the development process and we will compile all necessary documents, prepare your application, submit to the planning department of your local council, deal with the planning case officer and answer any queries as we manage your case to LPA decision.

NB There is no retrospective approval related to unauthorised works to a listed building as this is a criminal offence.
