Home Improvement: Do I need a planning permission?

Do you want to create more space in your home, make it more energy efficient or perhaps you are looking to self-build? Whether your project is large or small, certain rules will apply in the form of permitted development rights and planning permission. Permitted development rights allow you to make minor changes to your property without having to apply for planning permission.

To find out whether your home improvement or large scale commercial project needs planning permission or building regulations approval, the UK government Planning Portal is the best place to start from. The planning portal website has a common projects and interactive guides to find out about permitted development limits or explore in-depth guidance to understand about what you need to consider at each stage of your project. To make sure everything is alright, contact your local authority, especially if you’re living in a conservative area, an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty, a World Heritage site, a National Park, or Norfolk or Suffolk Broads, where stricter planning restrictions will apply.
