Advice and guidance is obtainable from the Planning Portal where there is an interactive house, common projects and mini guides.
The Planning department offers a Planning Questionnaire service which will provide advice on whether or not you require planning permission or building regulations for your proposal. If you require formal determination as to whether planning permission is required, a certificate of lawful development application should be submitted. Forms are obtainable from the Planning Portal.
