YourLondonBuilders.co.uk will guide you through the process of obtaining planning permission for both commercial and residential projects.
This rest of this page is mainly concerned with planning permission for common household projects. Most house holders are unsure if planning permission is required. The good news is that for many common projects such as house extensions, loft and basement conversions and front porches planning permission is not required as long as the work falls under the rules of 'permitted development'..
These rules define the maximum size and shape of your extension or conversion. If you project doesn't conform to these rules you will need to apply for planning permission. If you live in a Heritage or Listed Building, or live in a conservation area you will need planning permission not matter what the size of the project.
YourLondonBuilders.co.uk will guide you through the process of obtaining planning permission (if required ) and Building Regulations Applications for any House extension or conversion project including
Planning Permission shouldn't be confused with Building Regulations. Any extension or conversion work on your house will need to comply with Building Regulations even if planning permission is not required. Simply put, Building Regulations concern Heath and Safety issues with the project whereas Planning Permission is concerned with how the development will impact your neighbours, the surrounding area and wild-life.
