Town and Country Planning (Section 62A Applications) (Procedure and Consequential Amendments) Order 2013 (S.I. No. 2140 of 2013).

Type of law

This Order sets out the procedures in connection with applications under section 62A of the 1990 Act. The procedures are modelled on the procedures for planning applications submitted to local planning authorities (set out in the Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2010). Section 62A, which was inserted into the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 by the Growth and Infrastructure Act, 2013, provides for the designation of local planning authorities in accordance with criteria set by the Secretary of State. Where a local planning authority is designated a person wishing to apply for planning permission in the area of that authority may choose to apply to the authority as usual or instead apply to the Secretary of State. Schedule 1 to the Act makes consequential provisions in relation to the Secretary of State s function of determining these planning applications. In particular, this Order provides, among other things, for: the content and the procedure in relation to the making of planning applications and reserved matter applications made under section 62A of the 1990 Act; the applicant to serve a notice on the owners of the land to which the application relates; and the Secretary of State to consult the relevant planning authorities and certain statutory consultees in relation to the application.
