If you would like to extend your home – by adding a porch, an extra room downstairs or a garage – it’s likely that you will need planning permission.
If your extension involves major building work, you will also need building control approval to make sure that all work is completed properly and safely.
If you live in a listed building or in a conservation area any changes you would like to make to your home will need to be in keeping with the age and style of your home and will need planning permission.
Your local district council will be able to provide further information about planning permission and building control.
