Do you need planning permission for your extension?Published on 8th January 2018
When you’re planning a beautiful new extension, you don’t want anything standing in your way.
Planning permission can be a real headache, but if your project needs it there can be severe penalties for not having it in place. Not all extensions and building projects will need planning permission, but the rules can be complicated and it’s not always easy to figure out.
To make life easier, we’ve created a simple planning permission calculator that will help you work out if your planned extension counts as a permitted development.
To get the best from the tool, you should know the measurements of your planned extension, your original house and the land it sits on, but if you don’t have all of this information the tool can still be useful as a guide.
If you find that you’re going to need planning permission, obtaining it doesn’t have to be a difficult process. When you choose Apropos for your new conservatory or bespoke extension, we can deal with your local planning authority (LPA) on your behalf, making the whole experience hassle-free.
Navigate the planning permission regulations quickly and easily with our planning permission calculator now.Return to Blog
