Do I have permitted Development Rights?
Dwellings have permitted development rights unless there are any restrictions. If there are any restrictions, these will be explained in the conditions on the original planning permission.
You should also check whether any conditions were imposed on the original planning consent for your property which removed permitted development rights. You can search through the quick map search.
Unfortunately, understanding whether planning permission is required takes a considerable amount of research and we are unable to provide this information over the telephone.
Please note: Applications related to rural worker dwellings must be received as a full application, Pre-application advice cannot be provided for this type of development.
