Do I need planning permission?
Clients will often ask ‘do I need planning permission?’ The answer is dependent on a large range of factors. Is the building listed? Do your requirements comprise ‘development’ or change of use? The location of your property – is it in a National Park or Site of Special Scientific Interest? Are there any planning restrictions in your area? Applying for planning consent is a complicated process and one which at its quickest can take eight weeks, but normally is significantly longer.
With some of our projects we are only employed to achieve planning permission, this may be if a client is hoping to sell their house or site. Planning Permission will significantly increase the sales value of a property.
