Application for Non-Material Amendment
|Information required and when required||Information Required/Guidance|
Application for non-material amendment following grant of planning permission (Section 96a of the Town and Country Planning Act)
After planning permission has been granted the approved proposals/details may need to be modified. Where these modifications are minor and insignificant (non-material) an amendment under S96a condition may be appropriate
There is no statutory definition of 'non-material'. This is because it will be dependent on the context of the overall scheme - an amendment that is non-material in one context may be material in another. The LPA must be satisfied that the amendment sought is non-material in order to grant an application under section 96A of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
The procedure cannot be used to make non-material amendments to listed building consents.
The applicant must notify anyone who is an owner of the land which would be affected by the non-material amendment or, where the land comprises an agricultural holding, the tenant of that holding.
We will not accept s96A applications where:
