Multiple simultaneous planning applications for the same site

Multiple simultaneous planning applications for the same site

Postby Frank Taylor » Wed May 17, 2006 5:26 pm

Can a landowner submit more than one planning application for the same site at the same time and then wait to see which plans are approved? Then he would build the approved plan that gave him the greatest profit.

(sorry if this is a thick question)

Yes it is not that uncommon that a landowner will submit a second application shortly after an initial or even second or third one has been been submitted it can be percieved as a way of pre-empting 'negative site history' as the second application is made prior to the initial decision be it positive or negative. What may be worth checking is whether such an application must carry a yellow or white application notice on site

I am not sure if this is permitted in other juristictions

i've done multiple applications for the same site in the past, but not for different versions of the same building(s). if the second application is on the same site, whether or not it's for the same part of the site, it must be advertised on a yellow background. it is also necessary to indicate on the second application that the site is currently subject to an existing application.

Think the question was aimed more at the case of two applications for the same building, for example, A two story domestic extension application is lodged, family are unsure if it will be apprroved. Time is an issue so they also lodge a single story application which they are fairly confidant that it is acceptable. If 2 story is granted, they go ahead and build. If refused the sigle story extension is only a week or so away.

Not sure how acceptable the situation above is. Anybody know for sure.
