The Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987 (as amended) puts uses of land and buildings into various categories known as ‘use classes’. Day Nurseries are currently categorised as non-residential institutions, along with health centres, schools, art galleries, museums, libraries and church halls among others.
How Long Does It Take?
STEP 1: Pre-Application Consultation
A Pre-Application Consultation was submitted to Hart District Council and validated on 14/01/2015. The scope of this consultation was “Construction of a new building for D1 use on land adjacent to Hollybush House”.
The Pre-Application process is a useful service for Applicants to test ideas and assumptions. In turn the process helps to create better prepared planning applications that address all the key issues. The quality of the advice obtained is heavily dependant on the quality of the input by the Applicant. The ideas submitted do not need to be high quality drawings and generally they can be sketched up using readily available and free graphics software. In addition to the site and building elevation drawings, I normally include a document summarising my views on the proposal and how it meets the Planning Policies I think are relevant to the consideration.
