Where permission is granted for development, the planning authority may attach a condition requiring the lodgment of a cash sum or an insurance company bond which will be called upon to carry out any works required in the event of a developer failing to complete the development to the required standard.
It is the policy of the council to ensure that all bonds remain in place until the development is completed to the satisfaction of the planning authority as per the condition of planning. When submitting a bond, it must be in accordance with the approved bond format as per the link below.
When applying to release a bond, the developer is required to complete a release of bond application. The links below contain the relevant application forms for this purpose:
