Major developments include
- large housing proposals
- big supermarkets
- major roads
The processing of major development applications can be complex and involve more steps than smaller scale developments such as house extensions.
Pre-application screening opinion
If your development falls within the major or national categories you can complete a screening opinion.
These are optional.
Pre-application consultation with communities
Proposals for national and major development require consultation with the community at least 12 weeks prior to an application being submitted. A proposal of application notice must be submitted and an advert placed in the local press.
