Types of planning permission explained
1. Householder Planning Permission:
This type of permission is necessary for homeowners who wish to make alterations or extensions to their properties. Examples include adding a conservatory, converting a loft, or building an extension.
2. Full Planning Permission:
Required for larger projects, such as new housing developments, commercial properties, or changes in land use. It involves a more in-depth application process and more stringent regulations.
3. Outline Planning Permission:
This provides an initial agreement for a proposed development, allowing the applicant to establish whether the project is viable before committing to a detailed application. However, the developer must obtain final approval (Reserved Matters Approval) before construction can begin.
4. Lawful Development Certificate:
This is not technically a form of planning permission, but it is a legal document that confirms a project can proceed without the need for planning permission because it complies with permitted development rights.
