Householder applications - Changes once you have received planning permission    

Application for a non-material amendment following a grant of planning permission. Town and Country Planning Act 1990

Following a grant of planning permission, it may be necessary to make small amendments to the permission, for example moving a door or window. Where these are non-material this form can be used to apply. Whether or not a proposed amendment is non-material will depend on the circumstances of the case for example moving a window could be material if it results in the overlooking of a neighbour, but could be non-material if it does not. If you are uncertain you may wish to seek pre-application advice.
