Adoption Statement

Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004

Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012

This statement is published by Brighton & Hove City Council (”the council”) pursuant to Regulation 14 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (“the Regulations”).

The Design Guide for Extensions & Alterations SPD was adopted by the council on the 16 January 2020. The SPD provides guidance on planning matters related to extension design. It supplements the City Plan policy and, where planning permission is needed, will be a material consideration in determining planning applications.

Under Section 23 (1) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, the council has modified the SPD to take into account representations made in relation to the document and any other relevant matters. Modifications are included in the Statement of Consultation.

The Regulations provide that an Adoption Statement must specify that any person with sufficient interest in the decision to adopt the SPD may apply to the High Court for permission to apply for judicial review of that decision and that any such application must be made promptly and in any event not later than 3 months after the date on which the SPD was adopted. Due to the delay in publishing this Adoption Statement the 3 month time period specified in the Regulations has now passed.

The Design Guide for Extensions & Alterations SPD, Statement of Consultation and this Adoption Statement are available to view on the council’s website.

The documents are also available for inspection on request at Hove Town Hall.
