Do you need planning permission or advice

Get advice on the planning system, how to make a planning application, questions regarding charges or follow up an existing application by calling us on 020 8359 3000 and selecting the relevant option.

Planning Permission is a way of asking us if you can start a piece of building work. We will either refuse or grant you permission.

You might need planning permission if you want to:

  • build something new
  • make a major change to your building; building an extension
  • change the use of your building

There are different rules depending on what you want to do. The planning portal has a list of rules for common building work projects for the home.
