Do I need Planning Permission?
Welsh Government offer advice and guidance on their website regarding Permitted Development for householders:
Welsh Government Permitted Development Advice
Welsh Government Advice on Common Projects
The council is unable to offer informal, written advice on the need for planning permission and will require a formal application for all such determinations.
Submit a pre-application advice enquiry form together with the relevant fee:
• Householder - £25
• Minor development - £250
• Major development - £600
• Large major development - £1000
For an additional fee of £160 (inclusive of VAT) the Council will provide an hour meeting, at the Council’s discretion.
The Vale of Glamorgan Council will endeavour to provide a written response to all valid pre-application enquiries within 21 days, unless an extension of time is agreed between the authority and applicant.
As a minimum, applicants for householder developments should expect to receive the following information within their written response:
The relevant planning history of the site
The relevant development plan policies against which the development proposal will be assessed
Relevant supplementary planning guidance (i.e. design, conservation etc.)
Any other material planning considerations
An initial assessment of the proposed development, based on the information above
For all other development proposals, applicants should receive all the information outlined above, as well as whether any Section 106 or Community Infrastructure Levy contributions are likely to be sought and an indication of the scope and amount of these contributions.
