Some Matters or ALL matters reserved

Hello,

We are just starting out on obtaining planning permsission, and I just wanted to get some clarification if anyone might be able to advise.

 

I am new to this so please bear with me.

 

So firstly our scenario:  We are wanting to gain outline planning in order to sella  plot of land which we own. We have no desire (or capability) of building the house ourselves.

 

What I am unsure of is if we need ALL or SOME matters reserved.  It seems ALL matters is quite complex in our local area.  Including;

 

    • Archaeological Assessment

    • ̈  Biodiversity/Protected Species/Ecological Survey and Reports

    • ̈  Biomass Boiler Assessment

    • ̈  Construction Method Statement

    • ̈  Contaminated Land Survey and Report

    • ̈  External Lighting Assessment

    • ̈  Flood Risk Assessment

    • ̈  Foul Drainage Assessment

    • ̈  Heritage Statement

    • ̈  Heads of Terms Pro Forma (S.106 Agreement)

    • ̈  Landscape Assessment

    • ̈  Materials Schedule

    • ̈  Marketing and Viability Assessment

    • ̈  Noise Impact Assessment

    • ̈  Planning Statement

    • ̈  Planting/landscaping Scheme

    • ̈  Retail and Leisure Impact Assessment

    • ̈  Statement of Community Involvement

    • ̈  Structural Survey

    • ̈  Surface Water Drainage Scheme

    • ̈  Telecommunications Statement

    • ̈  Transport Assessment/Statement/Travel Plan

    • ̈  Tree and Hedgerow Survey

    • ̈  Utilities Statement

    • ̈  Ventilation/Extraction Report

     

    As are looking for the quickest most effective route to maximise the value of the land.... which is probably only going to be £100k max, the above list seemed quite extensive.

     

    Would SOME matters reserved be applicable for us, or should we go for ALL?

     

    Thank you all.

Do you have a Planning Consultant on board?

 

You don’t need all of those to obtain outline permission. You can get the outline permission and have three years to do the reserved matters.

 

Usually you leave it open so that people can pick their own design and materials, but if you can get the important ones like a flood risk assessment that would help. 
 

A planning consultant would tell you the surveys you need.

We’ve just purchased two plots 

He paid 500 for the planning consultant and a small amount for the planning application fee But did no surveys or Architecht fees

No idea where that list came from but our outline permission and another one along the lane in the Green Belt didn't have any of those. And to be honest some of them seem irrelevant to a small plot for residential development.

 

Take a look at some outline planning permissions in your area - do they have any of those surveys/statements?  My guess is none of them have, so crack on and apply.

Edit PS - you could spend way more than £100k on that list!!!!

If it’s in a flood zone, I don’t think they would give you outline permission without that survey would they? 
 

You might need someone to do the site drawings, nothing too complex. 
 

maybe I’m getting confused with something else I don’t do a lot of outline planning.

They will give you planning in principle without any surveys 

I’ve had to do all the surveys for a full application
