Do I require planning consent?
We can advise you on whether planning permission is required for your particular project. If you decide to go ahead then planning submission and liaison with the local authority department or relevant organisation is part of the service we offer. Certain types of development and extension which comply with particular conditions are “deemed consent” and therefore do not require full planning permission. It is usually sensible in this situation to apply to the local authority for a lawful development certificate. This provides formal confirmation that planning is not required and can be particularly helpful if for example you come to sell your property. Have a look at the planning portal for more information.
