Planning application - local requirement
When this requirement applies
A ventilation and extraction statement will be necessary for all applications for developments with an installation of extraction or air conditioning equipment, for example developments for new/change of use to A3 use. Alterations to existing dwellings and proposals for new dwellings do not require a ventilation and extraction statement.
What the statement should include
The statement should include all of the following:
- Details of the position and design of ventilation and extraction equipment
- Technical specifications, including noise generated and mitigation
- Odour abatement techniques (for example, when extracting cooking fumes)
- Elevation drawings which show the size, location, and external appearance of plant and equipment
