Permitted Development

Certain types of project don’t require express planning permission as they qualify under what is called “permitted development rights”.

Permitted development rights cover a wide range of works including building operations, extensions, demolition and certain changes of use. These can apply to both residential and non-residential properties.

Permitted development rights can simplify the planning process and avoid certain policy constraints, which might otherwise deem a proposal unacceptable in planning terms.

By consulting us, we can help you gain a clearer understanding of which permitted development rights may apply, what is likely to be accepted under permitted development, or whether a prior approval certificate is required.
