8. After the planning decision

The decision notice will be sent to the applicant (or agent) and will be displayed on the website view and comment on current planning applications

If the application is refused or withdrawn the applicant can contact us for a free discussion to consider if the reasons for refusal or withdrawal can be overcome in a revised submission, therefore avoiding an unnecessary appeal. Requests for detailed advice on revised submissions after this free discussion will be subject to normal pre-application planning advice fees.

The applicant has the right to appeal to the planning inspectorate following a refusal. There is no third party right of appeal. 

If the application is approved, there will usually be conditions that need to be discharged. There is an application form and a fee payable for each request (not per condition). You can apply online from our applying for planning permission page.

If you want to amend your planning permission you can apply to make very minor changes as a Non Material Minor Amendment. Changes that are still minor in nature but may have more impact will require a Variation of Condition application to change the plans condition. More substantial changes may require a new planning permission. You can apply online from our applying for planning permission page.

You should contact Devon Building Control to discuss whether building regulations is required.
