Planning applications

We handle planning applications for home improvements and large scale commercial projects in the Ashfield area. 

We are currently experiencing a high level of demand for planning applications. This may delay our response time and we appreciate your patience at this time.

Do I need planning permission?

Planning permission is asking if you're allowed to do a certain piece of building work.

It may be home improvements to create more space or improve energy efficiency. It may be a bigger project such as a self build. Or you may need permission for a commercial or residential project such as changing the use of a building. We can help you understand if you need planning permission

You may also find it useful to take the householder development planning questionnaire in the related documents section of this web page to find out more about whether you need planning permission. There is further information in the supplementary planning documents section also - including on residential extensions. 

As well as planning permission you will need to make sure you meet building regulations.
