Planning Permission

Planning Permission

It is very likely you will require planning permission; however, certain developments do fall under Permitted Development. Oakstone can determine the best course of action and if confirmation is required from the Local Authority, pre-application advice can be sought on the client’s behalf. Should a full Planning Permission application be required, Oakstone can put together a suitable scheme and apply on your behalf.

Building Regulations

Building Regulations

Most extensions, loft conversions, structural alterations or refurbishments will require Building Control approval. Oakstone can produce Building Plans and submit a Building Control application on your behalf. Some small-scale building work is exempt from Building Regulations: Conservatories, small porches, garages and some garden rooms. Exemptions usually depend upon the size and scale of the proposals but each must be judged individually.

Permitted Development

Permitted Development

Some extensions, porches, garden rooms and loft conversions fall under Permitted Development. What can be built under Permitted Development is usually limited by size, volume or height. However, it is always prudent to check either with a qualified professional or enquire with the Local Authority. Permitted developments may still require a Building Control application.
