Applications for approval

221.Paragraph 8 provides for two approaches for applying for approval from the Approving Body. Where planning permission under the Town and Country Planning Act is not required, then the application is to be made as a “free-standing” application, directly to the Approving Body. Where planning permission is required then the applicant can choose to make a combined application with planning permission, by lodging both applications to the planning authority at the same time.
