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.
