A major planning application is defined as:
- The creation of at least 10 residential units
- Work on a residential development on a site of 0.5 hectares or more
- Work on a non-residential development on a site of 1 hectare or more.
- The creation or change of use of 1000m2 or more of gross floor space (does not include housing)
Major planning applications are given 13 weeks in which to be determined as they are more complex and will usually require a greater level of consultation and negotiation.
