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.
