When do I Need To Apply For Planning?
You’ll probably need planning permission if you want to:
Build something new
Make a major change to your building, eg building an extension
Change the use of your building
After You Apply
Your local planning authority (LPA) will decide whether to grant planning permission for your project based on its development plan. It will not take into account whether local people want it.
To decide whether a planning application fits with its development plan, an LPA will look at:
- The number, size, layout, siting and external appearance of buildings
- The infrastructure available, eg roads and water supply
- Any landscaping needs
- What you want to use the development for
- How your development would affect the surrounding area, eg if it would create lots more traffic
If I Am Refused Planning
Here at SAM Planning, we have over 90% approved planning granted.
If your application is refused, we will try to come to an agreement with the local planning authority (LPA) by adjusting your plans.
