Replacement dwelling planning permission

Advice for replacement dwelling planning permission.

One of the largest barriers to building a home in the United Kingdom is the availability of space. Much of the country is restricted due to designations such as Green Belt, areas of outstanding natural beauty or various other constraints. The amount of space free for development is limited – and for many people the costs of new land is often prohibitive as a result.

Replacement dwelling planning permission is a way around this. By demolishing an older or poor-state building in a good area, a prospective owner can redevelop on the site in a way which will overcome many of the planning considerations and requirements which limit the development potential of greenfield sites.

Mistakes can be made that can delay your building project and causing knock-on effects that will increase the overall cost of the build.
