Planning application checklists

Outline planning consent

Applications for outline planning permission seek to establish whether the scale and nature of a proposed development would be acceptable to the local planning authority, before a fully detailed proposal is put forward.

This type of planning application allows fewer details about the proposal to be submitted. These details may be agreed following a 'reserved matters' application at a later stage. 

For further information, the Planning Portal provides comprehensive guidance.
