Permitted Development and dealing with Prior Approval Notifications
Inter-Authority Training

This workshop is suitable for any staff who have to deal with enquiries about Permitted Development or who need to understand PD in order to deal with alleged unauthorised development. This ever-relevant and popular workshop looks at how PD works and provides some crucial definitions and help in interpreting and applying the most frequently used classes of permitted development, many of which now include the prior approval notification procedure.  Its aim is to help participants develop the knowledge and confidence essential in dealing with these complex aspects of the planning process. The workshop will provide a useful opportunity to look in detail at Householder PD and how the Prior Notification procedure works, how applications should be processed and appeals/breaches handled. Crucially, it will provide an opportunity for delegates to ask any questions about PD and to be made aware of any further changes the Government are proposing to the regime.

Very extensive and intensive. Particularly relevant to officers responding to PD enquiries but good background knowledge for all officers working in the planning office and staff in the front line.
