New rules governing house extensions and commercial changes of use
The key changes include allowing the following without the need for planning permission.
- Larger single storey rear extensions to residential properties
- Larger extensions to industrial and warehousing premises, shops and offices
- Conversions from offices to residential uses
- More flexible uses of shops, offices and agricultural buildings
- Easier conversion of premises for school uses

Work out the correct fee
Note: Where the 1APP form requests Floorspace figures, please give the External Floorspace figure in addition to the Internal Floorspace. All planning fee calculations are based on the External Floorspace proposed. This will avoid any delay in validating your application.

Tree Work legislation
All new applications are required by law to be made on a national tree work application form.

As part of 1APP, the government has defined national requirements for the information required to be submitted in support of a planning application. These national requirements are to be supplemented by mandatory local requirements, which will be decided on by individual Local Planning Authorities. The intention is to have one set of local requirements for all of Hillingdon.
The London Borough of Hillingdon is out to consultation on the 'local requirements' of the validation checklists.
The Council's Planning Application Department are currently reviewing their Local Validation Checklists in line with the DCLG Requirements Guidance on information requirements and validation and are now consulting from 11th April 2011 for 28 days.
