To find out whether or not your project does not require Planning Approval and can be carried under Permitted Development have a look at the interactive guide on the Planning Portal. If in any doubt Plans 4 can clarify.
Planning Portal – Interactive Guide
If it is determined that your project falls under the category of Permitted Development ( does not require a Planning Approval ) we recommend, as you still have to produce plans for Building Regulations & Construction, that an appropriate planning version is submitted to the LA planning department to obtain a Lawful Development Certificate ( LDC ). This will give you peace of mind as well as official documentation for Building Societies & House Insurance – it could also be very relevant when you come to sell your property.
Details of our cost for this service (see Charges Menu).
