9. What happens once a decision is made?

If the decision is to refuse your application, you will be advised in writing.

If the decision is to approve your application, the Property & Estates Team will then make contact with you to agree terms and conditions. The negotiating surveyor may also make a site visit in the course of the negotiations.

Additional information may be required from you such as insurance documents or relevant licences if you are applying for (or renewing) a concession.

Once all the terms and conditions have been agreed with you, the Council’s Legal Services team will be instructed, by the Property Services Team, to prepare the legal documents.

At this stage you may wish to contact your own solicitor.
