The laws governing planning are very complex and planning consent is required
before most forms of development can be legally undertaken. Development is
defined in The Town and Country Planning Act, 1990 as:
“the carrying out of building, engineering, mining or other operations in,
on, over or under land, or the making of any material change in the use of any
buildings or other land.”
Details of planning applications and associated documents can be viewed on
the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council website.
