Do I need planning permission?

Depending on the work you are doing you might need to get planning permission or building regulation approval, or both.

It is important to find out if you need planning permission or building regulations before you make improvements or changes to a property.

Not all works need planning permission, some works can be undertaken using permitted development rights which allow householders and other developers to carry out certain development without needing to submit a planning application.

The government's Planning Portal website provides advice, including an interactive house and mini guides on whether your home improvement or large scale commercial project needs planning permission or not.

Consent may also be needed under building regulations and advice on this can also be found using the Planning Portal website.

Your Development may also be subject to the Community Infrastructure Levy, regardless of whether or not you require permission. View more information on the Community Infrastructure Levy.

 

How can I be sure?

To be certain if you need planning permission or not you can submit an application for a Lawful Development Certificate. View more information on Lawful Development Certificates
