Planning Applications

Planning Permission, in simple terms, is like asking if you can do a certain piece of building work or change the use of a property. It will be granted (possibly subject to certain conditions) or refused.

Certain types of minor work (‘permitted development’) can be carried out without the need to make a formal planning application but the nature of the work can be restricted by some local authorites and for certain types of buildings. – see following link – Always check with the local authority ‘Planning Department’ that the intended work qualifies.

The responsibility for accepting planning applications and making decisions rests with the ‘Planning Department’ of your local authority. – Applications which invariably require supporting scaled area maps, site plans and other information can be made by post or completed online. – The work can often be quite involved and detailed and we can do this on your behalf.

It is the property owner’s responsibility for complying with planning regulations and ensuring that ‘Planning Approval’ is obtained before any regulated work begins on site. – There are other considerations you may also need to address before you start work such as Building Regulations, health and safety provisions and possibly permissions involving Rights of Way, Party Walls and Listed Buildings consent.
