Do you need Planning Permission?

You generally need to apply for planning permission for any development of land or property. However, some works do not need planning permission and are called exempted developments.

Please note that you may also require a licence for events, appliances, hoarding, scaffolding, street furnishing and signage.

What do we mean by development?

This includes building, demolition, or alterations on land or buildings, and the making of a material (i.e. significant) change of use of land or buildings.
