Local development orders were introduced with the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 and allow local authorities to extend permitted development rights for certain forms of development with regard to a relevant local development document.

Development order[edit]

The TCPA 1990 states that

The Secretary of State shall by ... "development order"... provide for the granting of planning permission.[1]

For example, this enabled the General Permitted Development Order 1995, allowing the SoS to set out what is "Permitted Development".
