Faqs about Planning Permission

Why do I need planning permission?
For most property developments getting planning permission is a legal requirement. It's main purpose is to control the impact of buildings on the environment.

How do I apply for planning permission?
You will need to contact the planning officer at your local council to discuss what type of application is required. If you are applying for Full Planning Consent, your application will need to include detailed site location plans showing the extent of your development. If you live in a Conservation Area or in a Listed building, the requirements are more rigorous. Planning officers recommend using the most accurate and authoritative mapping available, such as Location Map.

You will usually need to submit up to six copies to illustrate:

  1. The location of your present site and its boundaries, with the layout of your proposed development.
  2. The relationship of your development with the surrounding area.
