Apply for a planning conditions check report

We sometimes grant planning permission subject to the development meeting certain conditions. These are imposed only when needed to make sure the development, or parts of it, are acceptable in planning terms.

A planning conditions check provides you with a report outlining any restrictions you may have. This is before you start your development, prior to your occupation of a house, and of any future restrictions. The report also includes the current status of planning permission conditions. It also gives details on whether they've been discharged.

Planning conditions sometimes need extra details to be sent to us, such as:

  • details about contaminated land and its remediation;
  • associated highway mitigation and improvements;
  • landscaping and construction management of the development.

If you need confirmation whether planning conditions have been discharged on a planning approval in the Barnsley borough. You can then apply for this report using the online form below.
