There are a wide range of factors that can effect whether a site can be developed.
When we consider any planning application, we have to think about any land restrictions that may affect our decision, these are called planning constraints.
Planning constraints include:
- Environment agency flood risk zones (opens in a new window)
- Trees covered by a Tree Preservation Order
- Conservation areas
- Listed buildings Article 4 sites and Scheduled Ancient Monuments
- Contaminated land
- Sites of Special Scientific Interest and Possible future Sherwood Special Protection Area
- Local Wildlife Sites, Local Geological Sites, Local Nature Reserves and Heathlands.
Advice on planning constraints
If you are concerned that your application could be affected by a planning constraint, either any of those listed above, or something completely different, please get some advice from our planning team before submitting your application.
