What is a 'significant' planning application?

According to the 2013 'North Northamptonshire Statements of Community Involvement' a significant development is:

Where a proposal/application is deemed to be significant by the planning authority by virtue of being large in scale or otherwise locally significant (see below),

developers/applicants will be expected to undertake community engagement and involvement in drawing up their proposals. This will include town and parish councils

and any neighbourhood planning group. Developers/applicants will need to submit a ‘Statement of Local Engagement’ showing how they have engaged the community in

their proposals and how it has changed as a consequence. Planning applications deemed significant that are not accompanied by a Statement of Local Engagement

when submitted may incur difficulties in being registered as a valid application by the planning authority. Applicants should discuss, if they are unclear, with the local

authority if the proposal is significant. Developers and applicants should consider the benefits of involving the community in developing proposals and preparing schemes

even when the proposal is not deemed to be ‘significant’.


Large-scale developments: For the purposes of this SCI a large-scale development includes proposals for residential development of 100 or more

dwellings, or a site area of 3 hectares or greater where the number of dwellings is not known. In respect of other land the definition includes proposals where the

sum of the floor area within the building is 1000 m2 or the site area is 1 hectare or greater. Large-scale development applications are likely to require additional

community involvement if the proposal will have a significant impact on the area, or create significant public interest or controversy.


Locally significant developments: Some proposals that are not of sufficient scale to be defined as large-scale development may have a wider impact beyond

neighbouring owners and occupiers. This category includes any proposal that, in the opinion of the local planning authority, would alter the overall character of the

locality by reason of its scale, use or visual appearance. It also includes development on sites that are sensitive to development pressures such as

proposals for substantial demolition in a conservation area, or proposals for development next to a listed building.
