Confirmation of compliance
How to get confirmation that your development complies with the Local Development Order
To get confirmation that your development complies with the Local Development Order you need to apply for a Certificate of Compliance.
How do I apply?
You need to complete the application form. You will need to submit the form, together with plans and elevations, a supporting statement, and the fee. That’s it.
We will acknowledge receipt and confirm whether we need any more information from you.
If you make a valid application, the next time you hear from us after the acknowledgement email, will be when we tell you of our decision. It couldn’t be simpler.
For help on how the required plans should be drawn, please see the helpful information contained within Appendix 4 of the Validation Guidance
