Do I need planning permission?

The planning portal provides you with an interactive house to help understand if you need planning permission.

Permitted development

Some development, known as permitted development, does not require permission. You can find out more information on the following links:

Unfortunately, we are unable to advise on if your work will be considered permitted development.

If you are unsure if permission is required, or if you require confirmation that a proposal is permitted development, you can apply for a Lawful Development Certificate on the Planning Portal.

Planning constraints

Use the map at the bottom of this page to see if there are any planning constraints on your property, such as conservation restrictions or protected trees.

Planning advice

We offer a pre-application advice service for planning permission applications, where a planning officer will provide their opinion and guidance on the likely outcome of your application.

You can apply and pay online or for further Information on how to make a planning application head to our forms, checklists and fees page.
