Residential Extensions and Alterations||
Minor changes within the curtilage of a residential dwelling may be made without the need to apply for formal Planning Permission. These rights are called Permitted Development Rights.
The Town and Country Planning Order came into force on 1st October 2008 and amends the 1995 Order with respect to permitted development rights and certain restrictions.
If you are unsure whether the alterations you wish to make would be considered permitted development, please contact Development Advice & Control or see the guides below.
