Permitted Development (PD)

 

As described on the previous page, all development requires planning permission. However, there are many kinds of development that have automatic planning permission. These are known as permitted development or PD. If your proposal is PD, you do not need to make a planning application before you start work.  However, we advise that you get written confirmation by applying for a lawful development certificate (LDC). An LDC will prove that your work is lawful, which makes it easier if you move house in future.

 

Is my proposal PD?Permitted development

 

To find out whether your proposal is PD, you can use the Government's Planning Portal website. It hosts two excellent visual guides to PD, called the Interactive House and the Interactive Terrace.

 

Additional rights

 

Additional PD rights are currently available for large domestic extensions and certain changes of use. The Interactive Terrace gives more detail on these rights, and you can download our application forms and guidance notes by clicking on the picture to the right.

 

On the next page, we will describe the methods by which you can get our advice on a proposal.
