If you want to make any alterations to your home, first check whether planning permission is needed.If you live in a flat you must use the full planning application form. If not, use the householder application form for extensions or building a garage. There is a fee of £172. You can also use this form if you want to remove a condition that restricts the use of a garage if you are doing other work at the same time but a higher fee relating to the removal of condition will apply. There is a guidance note to help you fill in the form. Guidance on what you need to send with your application, the Householder Design Guide and other useful information is available by clicking on the Downloads tab. We aim to make a decision in 8 weeks and more information about the process and planning appeals are available. Use Public Access to find out how your application is progressing.You may also need Building Regulations approval for any building work.If you live in a listed building you will also need to apply for listed building consent. If your house is in a Conservation Area you may need consent if you are demolishing part of your property. If you plan to do any work which affects a wall you share with your neighbour or is on the boundary of your shared properties or you will dig within 3 to 6 metres of your neighbours property, you will need to get agreement from your neighbours (Party Wall Act).Householder Application FormHouseholder Guidance NotesHouseholder Notice if you do not own all the landMake an application onlinePlanning application validation criteria reviewWe are now consulting on the validation criteria for all application types including for householders and this closes on 1st July 2013.
