Householder Guidance Notes
How to make, search and track planning applications, plus advice, guidance and more.
Some minor developments, such as house extensions and garden sheds, are automatically granted permission by a statutory order and do not require you to submit a planning application. This is known as "permitted development". Other works will require you to submit a planning application.
The following notes contain general advice about the permitted development rules for different types of development. We recommend that even if you think your proposal will be permitted development, you should contact us for confirmation that an application for planning permission will not be required.
