Domestic planning applications
Telford & Wrekin Council has changed the way it operates to make life easier for householders wanting to extend and improve homes.
The Council has adopted measures that will speed up and simplify the planning process through the recently approved Local Development Order (LDO). For applications that meet specific criteria, a planning application will no longer be required.
Instead apT will manage a simplified process to issue a Certificate of Compliance cutting out the planning process; reducing a decision from 8 weeks to 2 weeks based on a checklist.
A further advantage to householders is that the service costs £150, which is less than a planning application.
