Some small scale developments can be carried out without having to obtain planning permission.

The Planning Portal provides a wide range of information and advice for householders and businesses, including whether planning permission and/or building regulations approval is needed before development can be carried out.

Before visiting the Planning Portal you need to check if there are any local constraints on your property.

Stage 1: Check for local constraints

These are planning requirements that are property or area specific such as:

  • Buildings of architectural or historic interest;
  • Conservation areas;
  • A planning condition which restricts or removes 'permitted development' rights.

Please enter your postcode and optionally your property name or number then select the 'Search for address' button.
