Where changes have been carried out to a property without planning permission being granted where it was required Concept 20 can submit a retrospective planning application for the work that you have carried out.

The request for this application does not mean that planning permission will automatically be granted however and the application will be treated in the usual way by the local authority.

Where approval will need to be sought due to unauthorised construction works being carried out, Concept 20 can provide retrospective application services for both the planning and building regulation stages of a scheme.

This would cover instances such as:

  • Where a client believed permitted development was applicable but permitted development rights do not apply to the property. The local planning authority may have removed some of your permitted development rights by issuing an 'Article 4' direction. This will mean that you have to submit a planning application for work which normally does not need one

  • The planning approved drawings have not been followed, for example the roof has been constructed too high or more floor area has been created than was permitted or the approved materials have not been used.

  • Where permitted development did not apply due to loss of parking to the site

  • Where an existing property has been sub divided without permission to create a new dwelling or additional living accommodation has been created on site without permission, e.g a new granny annexe.

Concept 20 Can provide a full service which includes:

  • Meeting with you on site to discuss the application

  • A full survey of the scheme as it is constructed
