The introduction of new permitted development rights is considered through public consultation. Views shared are considered when deciding whether to bring forward a new right and how it would apply. Alongside there is regular engagement with key stakeholders. Where a permitted development right requires the prior approval of the local planning authority on specific planning matters adjoining owners and occupiers would usually be notified and the local community would have an opportunity to comment.
