Title
The Town and Country Planning (Section 62A Applications) (Hearings) Rules 2013
Description
These three instruments (SI 2013 2140, SI 2013 2141 and SI 2013 2142) support the implementation of section 1 of, and Schedule 1 to, the Growth and Infrastructure Act 2013. Section 62A of the 1990 Act (which is inserted into the 1990 Act by section 1 of the 2013 Act) gives the Secretary of State the power to designate local planning authorities. Where a local planning authority is designated, a person wishing to obtain planning permission for major development has a choice: they can submit their application to the local planning authority in the normal way, or they can submit it to the Secretary of State. These instruments explain the procedure to be followed where a person submits such an application to the Secretary of State.
