Section 73 Planning Applications

Section 73 planning permissions grant planning permission for an identical planning permission as the original, save for different conditions.

Section 73 planning applications may be necessary during development due to the need to amend plans as work is in progress (although some changes may qualify as non-material amendments). A Section 73 application may trigger the need to negotiate a new Section 106 planning obligation pertaining to the Section 73 permission.

Section 73 applications may also be used to consolidate certificates of lawful use to crystallise the fact that certain breaches of planning conditions are no longer enforceable.

Please call or email for more information.
