Re: Re: rule of administrative silence


Hi Roots,

I think its still in force but it cannot be used to cover an illegal planning application, so for someone who built legally with all planning licenses etc in place, if the final license isnt officially approved by the town hall because they dont get around to it, it can be deemed to have been issued by the act of silence (this was the actual reason for it being set up – it was just abused!). The finished article has to be as agreed by the architect and as approved by the town hall.
