Extensions to homes, or the erection of buildings within gardens (for example) often do not require an application for planning permission to be submitted to us.
This can include extensions, alterations to the original house and proposals within the boundary of the original house. We call this 'permitted development'.
Advice for homeowners
If you are a homeowner, you may not need planning permission, but to do any work you might need the agreement of our Building Control team.
Advice for businesses and developers
If you are a business or a developer, we advise you contact us as early as possible for pre-application advice.
