Permitted Development Rights
Permitted development rights define what you can do without securing an express planning permission from the local planning authority, saving you the time, trouble and expense of making a planning application. However, it is important to check that earlier changes to your property have not exhausted your permitted development rights or that the rights have not been removed by an Article 4 Direction.
Permitted development rights are regularly misunderstood and the changes which took effect on 1 October 2008 have triggered further controversy and confusion. To ensure that you do not fall foul of the law, even when your proposals do not require planning permission, we recommend that you obtain a certificate of lawfulness.
