What will I need planning permission for?

You will need planning consent for any extension to your property which is not covered by what is known as permitted development, which allows for certain extensions such as conservatories to be built without the need for planning consent. Whether an extension falls within permitted development depends upon the location of the property, whether any additional extension has taken place, the location of the proposed extension and its size and whether your property is detached or not.


Whether or not you need or obtain permission of a lessor or developer you may still need planning consent and you should refer to the governments’ planning portal, which provides guidance on what is permitted development without planning consent or building regulations approval and what is not.
