Will I Need Planning Permission First?
Planning Legislation deals with:
- the correct use of a piece of land
- the impact of a development on the surrounding area
- the look of the building or extension
- landscaping issues
- highway access.
Generally planning permission determines whether the proposal is acceptable and therefore allowable. It may be wise therefore to wait until planning permission is granted before making a Building Regulation application.
