So just when do you need planning permission?

Well, planning permission requirements are a bit more detailed than this short list. As a general rule you will probably need permission if:

  • You’re going to build a new building or structure
  • You’re drastically going to change your existing building e.g. extending out the back or side or putting another storey on
  • You’re wanting to change the use of the building, say from residential to light industrial or perhaps back again as often happens on properties close to the high street.

When don’t I need planning permission?

Some projects don’t need planning under permitted development rights. These include:

  • Outdoor signs and advertisements
  • Demolition
  • Warehouses and industrial units

On a ‘per project’ basis, all of the above have special rules, conditions or limits which may apply. Always best to check with the authorities before proceeding.

Check with my local authority

Our structural engineers are members of either the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) or the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).

Community Rights

If the community supports your building project or it benefits the local community, you may not have to go through the normal planning permission process. 

Neighbourhood planning and Community Right to Build lets your community grant planning permission directly under certain circumstances.

On a ‘per project’ basis, the above have special rules, conditions or limits which may apply. Always best to check with the authorities before proceeding.
