EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) Regulations 1992 (“the 1992 Regulations”).

They amend the provisions in regulation 15 and Parts 3 to 5 of Schedule 4. Those provisions in the 1992 Regulations apply sections 78 and 79 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (“the Planning Act”), as modified, to appeals in relation to applications for express consent and where a discontinuance notice is served under regulation 8 of the 1992 Regulations.

The effect of the amendments is to require—

(a)a notice of appeal to be accompanied by a full statement of case comprised of a written statement containing full particulars of the appellant’s case and copies of supporting documents in the case of appeals—

(i)against the grant of express consent which is granted subject to conditions;

(ii)where a local planning authority has failed to determine an application for express consent; and

(iii)in relation to discontinuance notices; and

(b)the appellant to serve on the local planning authority, as soon a reasonably practicable, a copy of the notice of appeal and, in the case of the appeals mentioned in paragraph (a) above, to also serve a copy of the full statement of case.

These Regulations also remove Part 4 of Schedule 4 which set out sections 78 and 79 of the Planning Act as modified by the 1992 Regulations in relation to applications for express consent.

There are transitional and saving provisions.
