Retrospective Planning Permission

If you have made any change to your home that requires planning permission and you have not had planning approval, the local authority can request that you submit a retrospective planning application for the changes that have taken place on your property. The local authority will then make the request to the legal owner of the land of whom it concerns.

Although local authorities may ask for a planning application to be submitted, this does not necessarily mean that the planning permission will instantly be granted. The planning application will be treated as if it were a completely normal planning application with no guarantee.

If the retrospective planning application is refused, the local authorities can issue an enforcement notice which will then requires the legal owner to put things back to the way they were on the property originally.
