EasyPlan can advise clients whether their scheme would fit within the Permitted Development criteria.

Clients are often surprised at what they are able to do under Permitted Development. Permitted Development is judged purely on the facts and not based on the opinions of planning officers or neighbours. As long as your scheme fits within the criteria it can”t be turned down.

We would always recommend a Lawful Development Certificate which proves any work carried out is legal, this is necessary when you sell your property and can also be a requirement of your lending provider. Detailed drawing plans will still need to be submitted to your local authority (they are required for Building Regulations also) but the fees payable to the council are half that of a planning application.

Find out more about permitted development at the Planning Portal website (opens in a new window), or check out their miniguides for detailed information relating to your project:
