Permitted development explained
Permitted development rights are essentially a scheme, created by the Government, that allows you to extend/renovate your home without the need for a full planning application.
They cover a range of different projects, from loft conversions to rear extensions, garage conversions to even adding a whole new storey onto your home.
In order to qualify, both your home and project must adhere to strict guidelines. This means they won’t be right for everyone. However, by ticking the right boxes, it can be a great way to get around fussy and subjective planning departments.
We’ve designed this tool to help you understand what changes you can make to your property without the need for a full planning application.

Please note: this tool is for general guidance only and no project should be undertaken without first consulting an architect or other planning specialist. Failure to properly comply with permitted development rights may result in fines and even demolition.
