Lawful Development Certificate (Proposed) Guidance
Lawful Development Certificate (Proposed)
Guidance for Proposed Lawful Development Certificates.
This is a special type of application that seeks to certify that a development is immune from enforcement action because it is lawful. A “proposed” lawful development certificate is used for proposed development. This can relate to uses of land and buildings, or building works or other operations.
Reasons for applying for a Certificate:
In submitting an application you will need to specify why you believe the development to be lawful. This might be because the works involved would not amount to “development”; or the works are permitted by a development order or an express grant of planning permission.
It is up to the applicant to provide the evidence to prove their claim.
