Non-material amendment to a planning permission (S.96A)

Following the granting of planning permission, you may wish to make amendments to your planning permission.

Where these are non-material, you can use the Non-material amendment form. Whether or not a proposed amendment is non-material will depend on the circumstances of each individual case. This is because a change which may be non-material in one case could be material in another. There is no statutory definition of "non-material" under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (As amended), but we must be satisfied that the amendment sought by you is non-material.

If you are not sure, you may wish to seek pre-application advice from us. If a non-material amendment application is successful, no new planning permission is created. This because the original planning permission still stands and therefore, the non-material amendment should be read in conjunction with the decision letter issued with the original planning permission.

To apply for a non-material amendment, you can apply online at the Planning Portal or download the form:
