The basics?
The role of the planning system is to regulate “development”, defined by
Section 55 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 as:
“Any building, mining, engineering or other operation in, on or under land
and any material change of use”
Development may only be carried out with appropriate planning permission:
granted by the Local Planning Authority; or
under permitted rights
