This is the original version (as it was originally made). This item of legislation is currently only available in its original format.

Article 24

SCHEDULE 5Notification where planning permission refused or granted subject to conditions

TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING ACT 1990

Notification to be sent to an applicant when a local planning authority refuse planning permission or grant it subject to conditions (to be endorsed on notices of decision)

Appeals to the Welsh Ministers

  • If you are aggrieved by the decision of your local planning authority to refuse permission for the proposed development or to grant it subject to conditions, then you can appeal to the Welsh Ministers under section 78 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

  • If you want to appeal against your local planning authority’s decision then you must do so within 6 months of the date of this notice.

  • Appeals must be made using a form which you can get from the Welsh Ministers, Planning Inspectorate at Crown Buildings, Cathays Park, Cardiff CF10 3NQ, or online at www.planningportal.gov.uk/pcs.

  • The Welsh Ministers can allow a longer period for giving notice of an appeal, but are not normally prepared to use this power unless there are special circumstances which excuse the delay in giving notice of appeal.

  • The Welsh Ministers need not consider an appeal if it seems to them that the local planning authority could not have granted planning permission for the proposed development or could not have granted it without the conditions they imposed, having regard to the statutory requirements, to the provisions of any development order and to any directions given under a development order.

  • In practice, the Welsh Ministers do not refuse to consider appeals solely because the local planning authority based their decision on a direction given by them.

Purchase Notices

  • If either the local planning authority or the Welsh Ministers refuse permission to develop land or grant it subject to conditions, the owner may claim that the owner can neither put the land to a reasonably beneficial use in its existing state nor render the land capable of a reasonably beneficial use by the carrying out of any development which has been or would be permitted.

  • In these circumstances, the owner may serve a purchase notice on the local planning authority in whose area the land is situated. This notice will require the local planning authority to purchase the owner’s interest in the land in accordance with the provisions of Part VI of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. (The local planning authority may accept the notice and proceed to acquire the land; or reject the notice in which case they must refer the notice to the Welsh Ministers.)
