Planning permission is required for all major works on a property, and all work that will significantly alter the appearance of a property.

There are many reasons why local authorities require you to apply for planning permission before you can proceed with building, altering or extending a property.

Conservation areas and listed buildings are of particular concern to planning officials, as they are deemed to be of architectural or historical significance to the area. Properties of these types are attached to strict regulations that prohibit certain developments of properties.
