Back in April, we launched our new Non-Material Variation Service. This is part of our wider efforts to improve customer service and consistency across planning.
A Non-Material Variation (NMV) application is a proposal to change an approved development that will not significantly alter what was granted planning permission.
We have introduced a new and streamlined way to apply for NMVs, and a new formalised Application Form and Customer Guidance for applying.
We have received almost 90 NMV applications since April & with this new service have been able to process them in a more efficient way.
NMV applications can also be paid for easily at any time using our secure online payment form on our website.
Please do not contact individual case officers with regards to NMVs as all queries and requests are being managed through the new process.
