What is Planning Permission?

Approved Planning Drawing | Studio FRI | Preston

Planning Permission, in straightforward terms, is essentially a request to your Local Authority Council asking if you can carry out a particular building project. This request can either be granted, often with conditions, or refused.

At Studio FRI, we recognise that navigating the world of Planning Permission can seem daunting, but we're here to simplify the process for you. Our team is well-versed in the intricacies of local regulations and can guide you through every step of your planning application.

When is Planning Permission Needed?

The requirements for Planning Permission can vary, but here are the main scenarios where you'll likely need to seek permission:

1. Building a New Home or Altering an Existing Property:

Whether you're constructing a brand-new house or making significant changes to an existing property, Planning Permission is typically required before any work begins.

2. Large Extensions or Outbuildings:

If you're considering extensive extensions or adding significant outbuildings, such as a garage or studio, Planning Permission is usually necessary.

3. Development on Designated Land or in Conservation Areas:

If your property falls within designated land or a conservation area, you'll need to seek Planning Permission from your local authority before proceeding with any construction or alterations.

While these are the general guidelines, each project is unique, and there may be exceptions to these rules. That's why it's crucial to involve Studio FRI early in the process. Our team can assess your specific project and provide tailored advice to ensure compliance with regulations.
