What are Permitted Development Rights in 2024?

Some projects don’t require planning permission as they qualify under “Permitted Development Rights”.

These rights cover a wide range of works including building operations, extensions, demolition and certain changes of use and they can apply to both residential and non-residential properties.

How do I know whether my project qualifies as Permitted Development?

We often receive this question from our clients, and the answer depends on a number of factors, including the size and location of your project, as well as its overall appearance.

Within Permitted Development Rights there are still certain standards and criteria that need to be met such as the size, location and appearance of your project; as well as additional restrictions on Permitted Development in certain ‘designated areas’ such as Conservation Areas and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

We can help you gain a clearer understanding of which Permitted Development Rights may apply to your project, what is likely to be accepted under Permitted Development, or whether a prior approval certificate is required.

Having a consultant involved in your project, is a great way to reduce the risk of errors and it can drastically speed up the timeline for achieving planning permission.

If you think you need support with your project, we’d be happy to help.
