Do I need planning permission?
Certain works can be carried out without the need to apply for planning permission. This is known as 'permitted development'.
Which type of consent do I need?
The type of permission required can vary depending on the nature of the works being carried out. The Planning Portal provides information on the different types of consent available.
Can I get confirmation that I don't need permission?
If you are satisfied that your proposed works do not require planning permission, you can apply for confirmation in the form of a lawful development certificate.
