Q. Do I need planning permission?

A. There are a couple of ways in which you can establish whether planning permission is required.

You can find out if you need planning permission before you start your project, at no cost, by visiting the Planning Portal where you can find a wide range of advice and guidance on the planning system in England. The key features of the Planning Portal are the use of Interactive information and mini-guides for common projects.

Should you prefer written confirmation that your proposal does or does not need planning permission it is possible to apply for a Lawful Development Certification from the Council.  This is a formal process in which you would make a planning application by submitting an application form, scaled drawings and the payment of a fee.
