Before applying for planning permission, it’s a good idea to meet or speak to a planning officer for pre-application advice to help you find out what you may need to provide in your application to get your planning proposals approved.
As a homeowner your work is likely to fall under Householder development.
Your work will be a householder development if it’s for:
- an extension to a dwelling, outbuilding or other development within the garden, not new dwellings
- a garage
- roof alterations
- crossovers (dropped kerbs)
- hardstanding (driveways)
