Planning and building

Quicker permission for householder extensions

We have adopted a ‘Local Development Order’ which allows householders to build larger extensions without the need for planning permission. We also provide confirmation of such proposals within 10 working days, rather than 8 weeks for a traditional planning application.

If you haven't already found what you are looking try our Planning Advice, which we hope will make the process a little clearer.
