PLANNING PERMISSION FAQS

BUILDING CONTROL FAQS >>

<< MAIN FAQS

On this page you will find lots of questions that we are frequently asked regarding planning permission and planning restrictions..

 

Please note, though our list of questions and responses is quite extensive, it doesn't cover everything. Many of the questions are generic and at the time you are reading this some answers may be out of date (written as of summer 2012), since planning policies, laws, and building regulations are in a constant state of flux. As such, we do not hold ourselves legally liable for any information that is relied upon herein.

 

Our intention here is to provide you with general information and guidance and we suggest that if you have a project in mind that you call and arrange a consultation such that we can provide answers directly tailored to your situation. In the meantime, please click on the appropriate link to find your answer.
