Permitted Development

Permitted Development Rights are a national grant of planning permission which allow certain building works and changes of use to be carried out without having to make a planning application.  In many cases, our clients are surprised by just how much freedom they actually have.  

At Peak Architects, with our extensive knowledge of working within Permitted Development Rights, we can guide you through the detail to ascertain whether your scheme qualifies.  It is important to note that each project should be considered on an individual basis.

There are restrictions on certain properties, for example, with listed properties or homes situated within Designated Conservation Areas or Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

To establish whether your ideas apply to these Rights, please get in touch to discuss your project in more detail.

A recent example of how we applied our knowledge, giving a successful outcome, is one of our Doncaster based projects, Hill View Class Q.
