These Rules amend the Town and Country Planning (Section 62A Applications) (Hearings) Rules 2013 following the inclusion of applications for non-major development within the categories of application which may be made directly to the Secretary of State rather than a local planning authority when that planning authority is subject to a designation under section 62A of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. These Regulations make detailed provision in that regard. They provide in particular that the Secretary of State must give no less than five working days’ notice of a hearing to be held before a person appointed by the Secretary of State in respect of an application for non-major development.

The United Kingdom has historically played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith in the 19th century, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted in two world wars and the Irish Republic's withdrawal from the union. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation.
