Why listen? 

Give this episode a listen for:

  • The difference between permitted development & planning permission
  • Planning for flats/maisonettes 
  • How to improve your chances of a successful planning application
  • Main reasons planning applications get refused 
  • What to do if your planning application gets refused
  • What happens after planning 
  • When you should employ contractors 
  • How building regulations are independent from planning regulations
  • When you don’t need planning permission

Things to remember 

It’s important you get your head around the rules before making any major changes. You don’t want to have to remove anything you’ve spent time and money putting in place. We’re here to get you clued up. 

Remember: have planning permission in place before you start thinking about employing contractors. This should be one of the first steps of planning a major home renovation. You’ll want to be thoroughly organised from the outset: failing to plan is planning to fail! Hopefully, our expertise can help things run as smoothly as possible.
