Written confirmation whether planning permission is necessary can be provided by the Council. This is not the same as a ‘Lawful Development Certificate’, which will undertake a formal process, but could be used as an informal alternative.
How to apply
In order to request the permitted development confirmation the following information is required:
- download and complete a permitted development questionnaire
- download the pre-application charges list ensuring you choose the appropriate fee
- any sketches of the proposal.
What will be provided
An assessment of the proposed works against the General Permitted Development Order and a written letter confirming whether planning permission is required. We aim to respond to these within 5 working days. If planning permission is required we will set out the parameters for development.
