Hi all, quick question on planning if anyone has any experience or knowledge on the subject.
 
I understand if you submit a full planning application you are subject to the current rules of the PDM/Fire Risks etc. at that point in time.
 
Does anyone know if that is the same case for a PIP?
(Pre Planning Application/Pedido de Informação Prévia)
 
I also read somewhere upon submission the agencies have 5 days to report back to the câmara about the land (PDM, Fire zones etc.)
 
Is there anything official about that anywhere? Can't find the original source now where I first came across it.
 
Thank you!

In principle, yes - the regulations are those at the time.  However, if there is a subsequent amendment, or if the work/project requires a more thorough planning process, and if there has been a change in the PDM etc in the meantime, then the updated version will then be applied.

We don't believe this to be the case - it would seem unlikely to us that such a tight prazo would be applied to this kind of thing, and therefore I wouldn't rely on it, without clear evidence from your câmara. It is implausible for one public body to consult with, and get a formal response from, another public body in such a timeframe.  I wonder if there is some other timeline which someone had quoted (but even so, 5 days is not a timescale I recognise).

Unless the consequences of things going wrong are minor, I wouldn't rely on being able to advance things so rapidly.

@thomasribatejo Thank you Thomas. Yes I am not sure on the '5 day rule' maybe I was thinking of something else at the time or someone received some wrong information.

 

We are looking to submit a PIP application but have heard the câmara are very busy at the moment. If we submit today it will get approved but who knows in 12 months time when they eventually see our application all the rules might have changed and it will get rejected.
