Build with out Planning Consent!: Permitted development

Achieving the best for your home, maximising space, minimising local authority intervention.

Permitted Development is your right as home owner.

Many builders advise client that planning permission is not required, and they are right. But it is important to ensure that the proposals fall within the rules. If not the local authority will take enforcement actionto make it compliant.

We would recommend that you apply for a Certificate of Lawfulness prior to construction. It does not seek permission but agreement that the proposals fall within the lawful rules of permitted development. This will safe guard the value on sale of the property.
