New application type - Permission In Principle (PIP)

Applications for ‘Permission In Principle’ can be submitted to Local Authorities in England from the 1 June 2018. You can download a paper version of the form Permission in principle here.

The current scope of these applications is limited to minor residential developments with less than 10 dwellings and related non-residential work.

This specifically excludes:

Major developments: In the context of residential developments these are any proposals with 10+ dwellings; 1000+ square metres floor space; or 1+ hectare site area.

Householder development: Development of (or within the curtilage of) an existing dwelling for any purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwelling.

Habitats development: Anything that has a significant effect on a ‘European site’. Please see news story from May 2018 regarding SPA's within Waverley Borough.

Schedule 1 development: Any development listed in Schedule 1 of the Environmental Impact Assessment regulations

If ‘Permission In Principle’ is granted, an additional ‘Technical Details Consent’ (submitted as a full planning application but with specific reference to the ‘Permission in Principle’ consent) is also required before development can commence.
