25.1 Introduction | 25.2 Issues | 25.3 What some other Local Planning Authorities require
Sometimes people want to change the use of, or redevelop a site. What they want to do may not necessarily be supported by policies.
We currently require applicants to market the site/property for a sustained period of 12 months. Some people think this time period is too long.
