The Need For Planning Permission

Please note that the ‘interactive house’, ‘common projects’ and ‘mini guides’ links available at this link (the planning portal website) are particularly useful. Should you wish to gain formal confirmation from the Council that you do not require planning permission for your project and it would constitute ‘permitted development',  please submit a ‘certificate of lawfulness’ via the planning portal website.
