Advice Hub: Planning permission

Planning permission is a thorny issue and one that causes a lot of confusion for property owners, particularly for residential clients. Does a covenant affect planning permission? Can you have a conservatory without planning permission? What is permitted development? Can I have a dorma on my loft conversion? How big can I build out the back of my house? Can I build another storey on my bungalow? Do I need planning permission for my basement conversion? We have a series of articles in our advice hub that cover these queries and more.
