Apply for planning permission

Do I need planning permission?

Some extensions and other building work can be carried out without planning permission on most houses which is known as permitted development.

To find out more about particular home improvement projects you can explore the Planning Portal's projects page, which has an interactive house to help you understand if planning permission is required or not.

Next steps if you do not require planning permission:

If to the best of your knowledge you believe that your project does not need planning permission it is advisable to apply for a certificate of lawful development.
