Householder permitted development guidance
To find out the planning history of your property, including whether it has any permitted development rights (removed or not by a planning condition on a previous or original planning permission), we recommended you:
Request a planning history search
This will provide you with a list of all planning application numbers relating to your residential property.
For help on what permitted development is and to see the categories of permitted development please refer to Schedule 2 Part 1 of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 2015, as amended.
Alternatively, find out about our pre-application advice.
Will I need planning permission?
To find out if you need planning permission, having viewed the property history, you can then:
- Review guidance on commonly undertaken householder projects
- Review the interactive guidance for householders on the Planning Portal.
- Seek further advice and/or confirmation from the council following the above, then you could submit a certificate of lawfulness for proposed development. Details of how to do this and application forms and fees applicable can be found at Planning Portal.
- Submit a pre-application householder enquiry. To find out more visit our pre-application guidance.
- Unless your dwelling is a listed building internal works (e.g. removing walls or adding internal walls, or replacing fire places) are unlikley to require planning permission.
