Care - Conservation Area

4)

Building Regs. - Separate Approval
Separate approval for the works hereby granted planning permission may be required by the Building Act 1984 and the Building Regulations 2000 (as amended), and the grant of planning permission does not imply that such approval will be given.

Any proposals for external fire escapes, exit housings, roof walkways, or safety railings arising from the requirements of the Building Regulations may require further planning permission, and approval under those Regulations does not imply that planning permission will be granted.

Household Waste
You are advised that it is the duty of the occupier of any domestic property to take all such measures available to him/her as are reasonable in the circumstances to secure that any transfer of household waste produced on the property is only to an authorised person or to a person for authorised transport purposes.

10)

Subterranean Development
The responsibility and any liability for the safe development of the site rests with the developer and/or landowner. Although the Council has used its best endeavours to determine this application on the basis of the information available to it, this does not mean that the land or adjoining land will necessarily remain free from instability. The Council's consideration has been only on the basis of the development proposed, and these considerations may be different in relation to any other development. The question of stability has been a material planning consideration and the resolution of this issue for the purposes of granting planning permission does not necessarily imply that the requirements of any other controlling authority would be satisfied and, in particular, the granting of planning permission does not give any warranty of support or stability for adjoining properties.
