Even if your extension falls under the guidelines, it is always recommended to apply for a Permitted Development certificate. You will then have total peace of mind that you are staying within the rules and boundaries. Plus, this certificate provides evidence that all work is lawful during construction and therefore any complaints made by a neighbour can be easily handled.
At happinest we can build a strong application on your behalf that will ensure peace of mind both during and after your home improvement is completed.
Permitted development gives homeowners the right to do certain types of work without having to apply for a building permit.
If you plan on building a new house or creating a new dwelling, it is unlikely you will fall under permitted development.
Similarly, if you want to make changes to a listed building or property in a designated area, then it is probable that Permitted Development rights will be restricted.You can get in touch with us at Happinest today for more information about permitted development.
Definitely not – The size of the extension, its location and the type of windows will all decipher whether permitted development is permissible. Larger extensions are more likely to require planning permission.
