Application Form
Remove or Vary a Condition
Guidance for applications to remove or vary a condition.

Conditions are often applied to planning approvals. These may limit or control the way in which the approval may be implemented. Section 73 of the Planning Act allows applications to be made for permission to develop without complying with a condition previously imposed. The Planning Authority can grant such permission, perhaps with different conditions or they can refuse the application. The original planning permission continues to subsist whatever the outcome of the s73 application. The approval of such an application is a planning permission in its own right.

This type of application cannot be used to vary the time period for the commencement of development works.
