Find out if you need planning permission before you apply.

Some alterations to your home might not require planning permission and could be carried out as a permitted development if they satisfy certain limits and conditions. These include:

  • extensions
  • dormers
  • outbuildings
  • hard surfaces/decking
  • boundary treatments
  • other specific works

You will need to use the planning portal's interactive guidance for householders to find out if you need to apply for planning permission:

Do I need planning permission?

If you do not require planning permission you might wish to apply for a Lawful Development Certificate under Permitted Development.
