Reserved matters

Where outline permission has been granted, you may, within three years of the outline approval, make an application for the outstanding reserved matters, i.e. the information excluded from the initial outline planning application. This will typically include information about the layout, access, scale and appearance of the development.

In October 2009, the Government introduced an application to extend the time limits for planning permission, including outline permissions. Learn more about here.
