Householder planning consent

Last Modified December 11, 2014

This form should be used for proposals to alter or enlarge single houses, including works within the boundary/garden of a house. It should be used for projects such as:

  • Extensions
  • Conservatories
  • Loft conversions
  • Dormer windows
  • Garages, car ports and outbuildings


Please note that planning permission is not needed for all household building work. Under permitted development rules you can carry out a number of household building work projects, provided they meet certain limits and conditions. You can find out whether you need planning permission on our do I need planning permission page. You can also seek pre-application advice from us before you submit an application to undertake any extensions or alterations to your property.
