Planning for householders
Some work does not require planning permission. Guidance on rules that relate to permitted development are on the Planning Portal.
For further information on whether you will need planning permission, please read our Householder permitted development guidance note together with the Permitted development for householders - technical guidance, which has been published by Communities and Local Government. Again, please contact us if you are in any doubt.
If your plans do not fall under permitted development you will need to find out more about what permissions, consents and approvals you need.
Lawful development certificate
If you would like to formally clarify whether your proposal is permitted you can apply online via the Planning Portal or complete our application form for a Lawful development certificate for a proposed use or development.
An interactive guide on the Planning Portal will help you explore how to progress common householder projects and whether you need permissions for them or not.
