This Order stipulates that, subject to certain conditions, development of any class specified in the First Schedule to this Order is permitted and may be undertaken upon land to which this Order applies, without the permission of the Development Applications Board. Conditions for granting however are that a certificate has been granted under article 4 in respect of that development and such development is commenced within two years of the grant thereof and the permission granted by this Order in respect of any class of development specified in the First Schedule shall be defined by any limitation and be subject to any condition imposed in the First or Second Schedules in relation to that class. If the Minister is satisfied that it is expedient that any particular development of any of the classes specified in the First Schedule should not be carried out unless planning permission is granted on an application in that behalf to the Development Applications Board, he may direct that permission granted by article 3 shall not apply to that development.

Bermuda was first settled in 1609 by shipwrecked English colonists heading for Virginia. Self-governing since 1620, Bermuda is the oldest and most populous of the British overseas territories. Vacationing to the island to escape North American winters first developed in Victorian times. Tourism continues to be important to the island's economy, although international business has overtaken it in recent years. Bermuda has also developed into a highly successful offshore financial center. A referendum on independence from the UK was soundly defeated in 1995.
