Circular 08/2003: Amendments to the GPDO & Listed Buildings Regulations
This Circular provides a guide to changes introduced in the Order and the Regulations which both apply in England only. Where it gives guidance amounting to an interpretation of the Order, it should be borne in mind that only the courts can interpret the law authoritatively.
This Circular should be read alongside DoE Circular 9/95, which (with the exception of Appendix E, which was cancelled by Circular 4/99) remains current.
- introduces a requirement to consult in England the relevant Regional Development Agency (RDA) before the grant of planning permission for certain categories of development;

- introduces a requirement for a local planning authority to provide a summary of the reasons for any grant of planning permission without conditions and a summary of policies and proposals in the development plan which are relevant to that decision; and
- reduces the time limit for appeal in respect of a planning application from six to three months.
- introduce a requirement for a local planning authority to provide a summary of the reasons for any grant of listed building consent or conservation area consent without conditions; and
- reduce the time limit for appeal in respect of an application for listed building consent or conservation area consent from six to three months.
