Using your Permitted Development Rights as a homeowner you can carry out certain types of building work, such as extensions, loft conversions and construction of outbuildings without the need to apply for planning permission.
Guides on what works can be performed can be found on the government.
Arcline Architecture would advise on the most suitable option in gaining consent; whether it be through a planning application or the permitted development route.
If your proposed scheme is eligible under your Permitted Development Rights we would always recommend obtaining a Lawful Development Certificate from your local council.
This certificate gives you peace of mind as it confirms that the works carried are lawful under planning control and that they meet the permitted development limitations and conditions.
