Non-Material Amendment (Section 96A)

This form should be used to make an application for a non-material amendment(s) to an existing planning permission.

Following a grant of planning permission, it may be necessary to make amendments to the permission. Where these are non-material, this form can be used to apply. Whether or not a proposed amendment is non-material will depend on the circumstances of the case, a change which may be non-material in one case could be material in another.

For more information about making changes to your planning permission please refer to the guidance notes.
