Permitted development

Permitted development in the UK refers to certain types of building work that can be carried out without the need for planning permission. These works are outlined in a set of national regulations known as the Permitted Development Rights. The purpose of these regulations is to simplify the planning process and reduce bureaucracy, while still ensuring that development is carried out in a way that protects the interests of local communities and the environment. Examples of permitted development include minor extensions to homes, certain types of agricultural buildings, and changes to commercial properties. However, it’s important to note that there are limits to what can be done under permitted development, and these limits vary depending on the type of building and the location. It’s always recommended to seek advice from a professional, such as an architect or planning consultant, to ensure that any proposed development falls within the scope of permitted development and meets all relevant regulations.
