Section 73 Removal or Variation of Condition

Section 73 Application to develop land without compliance with conditions previously attached form (also used for minor material amendments)

If you wish to develop land not in compliance with conditions previously attached to a grant of planning permission (sometimes referred to as varying or removing a condition) you must make an application under the provisions of Section 73 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. This form is also used to apply for minor material amendments to an existing planning permission.

Please download the Section 73 application to develop land without compliance with conditions previously attached form (also used for minor material amendments) (PDF) (opens in new window)

Please make sure your application includes the right information, or it will be judged as invalid.

Application requirements

Describing your proposal

To avoid delays, you must describe your application proposal properly. If we approve your application we grant planning permission for entire development again, so you must ensure that your description describes the whole development and explains which condition(s) previously imposed you do not wish to comply with. If you do not decribe your proposal properly we might not be able to validate your application.

You will always need:

  • Form
  • Correct fee

You will sometimes need:

  • Site location plan
  • Existing and proposed plans
  • Bat survey
  • Design and access statement
  • Heritage statement
  • Tree survey
  • Flood risk assessment
  • Non-mains drainage information
  • Construction method statement
  • Protected species survey
  • Policy CS16 compliance statement

For more details about when we need the information above, and what we expect, please see our guidance notes.

Top tip: if you are applying by post, please send three copies of all forms, plans and supporting information.
