Consolidated Versions of Legislation

For the main pieces of planning secondary legislation, this "Consolidated Legislation" section of the website provides a "consolidated" version of the legislation, which incorporates all of the amendment Statutory Instruments (SIs) into the original SI.

For other pieces of planning secondary legislation, the "Other Legislation" section of the website provides lists of which amendment Statutory Instruments (SIs) apply to the original SI.

Further information:

Many pieces of planning secondary legislation have been amended a number of times since they were first introduced. For example, the LBCA Regulations 1990 have been amended by 26 separate amendment Statutory Instruments (SIs), each of which has inserted, replaced, or deleted parts of the legislation. For such pieces of legislation, the "consolidated" version (or "as amended" version, or "revised" version) that actually applies in law today can be significantly different to the "original" version.

The government website that provides access to legislation is www.legislation.gov.uk. However, this government website only provides consolidated versions of some pieces of planning secondary legislation. For example, as of August 2020, this government website does provide consolidated versions of the Advertisement Regulations 2007 (link), the DMPO 2015 (link), and the GPDO 2015 (link), but does not provide consolidated versions of the CIL Regulations 2010, the Fees Regulations 2012, and the Use Classes Order 1987.

Furthermore, some of the consolidated versions of legislation on the government website are not up-to-date. For example, as of August 2020, the consolidated version of the Compensation Regulations 2015 (link) on the government website does not incorporate any of the 6 amendment SIs (note: these SIs are listed as "outstanding changes"), even though the oldest of these SIs (i.e. SI 2016 No. 331 (link)) came into force more than 4 years ago.
