Design and Development Control Guidelines
9 TEMPORARY PLANNING PERMISSION
9.1 This guideline addresses the situation that occurs when the Council grants a temporary planning permission for a particular use.
9.2 For the Council to grant a temporary planning permission it will need to be assured either that the use is temporary by its nature, or that a trial period would enable the authority to be sure of the character or effect of possible "bad neighbour" developments (in accordance with Circular 11/95 advice).
9.3 Where there is an application to renew a temporary planning permission, the Council will only grant a further temporary permission where a clear end date is known. In all other cases the application will either be granted permanent permission or refused.
