Planning Permission or Permitted Development?

Planning permission is a formal request made to the local authority to build something new or add something to an existing building. Building over 3m from existing structure.

Permitted Development Rights derive from a general planning permission granted not by the local authority but by Parliament. Bear in mind that the permitted development rights which apply to many common projects for houses do not apply to flats, maisonettes or other buildings. Building up to 3m of existing structure.

Knowing the Building Regulations for Extensions

Even if you do not need planning permission for your extension, because you are using permitted development rights, you must get building regulation approval.

The Building Regulations set out minimum requirements for structural integrity, fire safety, energy efficiency, damp proofing, ventilation and other key aspects that ensure a building is safe.

Most repair work is excluded from the Building Regulations, with the exceptions of replacement windows, under­­pinning and rewiring. However, apart from certain new buildings such as sheds, outbuildings and some conser­vatories, all new building work, including altera­tions, must comply with the Building Regulations.

Typical Examples of Work Needing Approval:
1. Home extensions such as for a kitchen, bedroom, lounge, etc.
2. Loft conversions. Internal structural alterations, such as the removal of a load-bearing wall.
3. Installation of baths, showers, WCs which involve new drainage or waste plumbing.
4. Installation of new heating appliances.
5. New chimneys or flues.
6. Altered openings for new windows.
