Planning: What is Permitted Development?

There are many types of building works which do not require planning permission.  These are called “permitted development rights”.  These are a form of general planning permission granted not by local planning authorities but instead by parliament.

However, flats and maisonettes often do not benefit from permitted development rights in the same way as houses.  Likewise, commercial properties have different permitted development rights which will not be discussed in this article.
