Planning Permission

Planning permission is the formal consent granted by your local authority for a proposed building project, propert alteration or development.

All major work carried out on a property is likely to need planning permission from the Local Planning Authority (LPA). The work must also be compliant with Building Regulations. Examples where work may need planning include:

  • Loft conversion or roof terrace in a conservation area
  • Two-storey rear or side extension
  • Construction of a permanent outbuilding, e.g. an office or garage
  • Solar panels
  • Gates and higher boundary walls
  • Internal work on a listed building

Some building work won't require full planning permission and can be built in accordance with Permitted Development (PD) rights.
