Permitted Development

The rules for permitted development have generally become more encompassing and far-reaching

Permitted Development Rights for Extensions & Outbuildings

The rules for permitted development (i.e. building works etc that do not require planning permission) have generally become more encompassing and far-reaching, reducing the number of planning applications for smaller projects, particularly house extensions, loft conversions, conservatories etc. Whilst these rules are generally for the best, often interpretation and implementation of the rules requires careful consideration.

Requirements

Depending upon the requirements of our clients and the specific nature of the proposals or context, we are able to ensure that schemes can be designed within the permitted development regulations and seek confirmation from the Local Planning Authorities accordingly.

The rules in England and Wales are currently different further confusing the issues and making it even harder for non-planning professionals to be sure of the situation.

As RTPI Chartered Town Planners we are best placed to assist with any matters relating to permitted development or the obtaining of a certificate of lawfulness. Please contact us for more information.
