Proposed Development: Outline application for 10 x 2-storey dwellings with all matters reserved except access.

Following an initial planning approved for a single-storey unit the applicant wanted to maximise the development potential of the plot which was a former allotment.  Having previously been turned down for a two-storey residential unit.  The site itself is constrained by the adjoining Conservation Area and the coniferous trees within it that are protected by the Conservation Area status and thus the development had to work around the route protection zones fro these trees whilst still placing a two-storey unit within a small plot and providing adequate parking and turning areas for two vehicles.  Utilising all the space available EN-PLAN were able to secure Planning Approval and improve the commercial value of the site significantly through the planning process as well as gaining planning permission for a more aesthetically pleasing residential unit.

What is outline planning permission and what does it achieve?

Outline planning permission is useful where the principle of building a residential property on a plot has not yet been established. If outline planning permission is granted it will have to be followed up by a full planning application.

It is a form of planning consent that we would apply for if a client wanted to build a new bespoke house on a plot and planning policy didn’t readily support its approval.

This might be the case if the plot doesn’t already have a residential building on it and it falls outside an established development boundary.

It can be a useful route when you want to establish the principle of building a new house on a plot before investing further in the design of a bespoke house.

Because the purpose of outline planning permission is to establish a principle it is almost entirely about addressing planning policy and has very little to do with the design of the house. Typically a very simple site plan showing the approximate size of the house and its’ location are all that is needed.

However determining the size and location to maximise your chances of getting outline planning permission is where knowledge of planning policy is needed. Additionally we would support an outline application with a document that sets out the case for approving the permission. Because outline is sometimes used as a first step where planning policy is stacked against building a new house, having an extensive knowledge of planning policy is crucial to putting forward the best case.

One of the benefits of applying for outline planning permission is that you don’t need to spend money on developing a detailed design before knowing what your chances of getting full planning permission are likely to be. If a site justifies the submission of an outline application i.e. your chances of success are good enough, then investing in submitting a strong case for approval becomes worth it.

There are some risks to submitting an outline application. If outline planning permission is granted the subsequent full planning application will have to conform to the principles of the outline planning. For this reason we aim to make the outline application as ‘loose’ as we can so that it restricts as little as possible the design of the house for the full application.

If OP is granted it will have ‘reserved matters’ attached to it. These are conditions that will have to be met by a full planning application.
