What is permitted development?
Under regulations issued for England by the government, it is possible to carry out certain changes to your home without any need for planning permission, they are referred to as ‘Permitted Development Rights’. In some cases, permitted development rights can be withdrawn or modified:
- locally by conditions attached to planning permissions
- if a property is subject to an Article 4 Direction
- within a conservation area, listed building or Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)
Flats and maisonettes are not subject to the same permitted development rights as houses. Alterations and extensions to flats and maisonettes may often require planning permission.
