If you wish to extend or alter your home you will probably require Planning permission. This is a consent granted by your Local Authority to ensure that your proposals are in accordance with their policies. Recent changes to legislation mean that some smaller work including adding a small extension or porch can be completed without Planning Permission. This is known as Permitted Development. Whether you will require Planning Permission depends on a number of factors such as the size and location of the proposed works and the size and type of your property. If the property is listed you will also require Listed Building Consent. I can provide free reliable and professional advice on all aspects of Planning Permission during our free initial consultation.
