Newtown St Boswells:
An outline planning application establishes whether the principle of a development is acceptable. Details of certain matters (known as reserved matters) do not need to be provided in an outline application – access, amount, layout, landscaping, or appearance – but you may wish to provide some of this information in order to support your application.
Just like full applications, most outline applications are determined by planning authority officers, with more contentious applications going to Planning Committee. If permission is granted you must provide details of the reserved matters for consideration by the council within two years of approval. If your application is refused you can appeal to the Planning Inspectorate.
For further information regarding outline consent or if you wish to discuss your project in detail, please contact the H&H Planning Team on 01228 406260 or email the team in confidence.
