We are experts in ‘Permitted Development’ rights and so can obtain a Lawful Development Certificate (LDC) for you. This formally confirms that Planning Permission is not required and it really does take away all Planning worries. It also avoids any potential enforcement action in the future and problems when you sell your property.
If you live in a Conservation Area the ‘Permitted Development’ rules are only slightly more restrictive and our beautiful designs are always sensitive to the historic environment.
If you live in a designated Green Belt, then choosing a garden room that is ‘Permitted Development’ can often make a big difference. This is because, when it comes to Planning Permission, Green Belt policies can be extremely strict on additions.
Having a garden room close to a protected tree (either via a TPO or a Conservation Area) doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t benefit from the Government’s ‘Permitted Development’ rights. If you are concerned about a tree we can work with an arboriculturalist and deal with any separate applications to the LPA’s Tree Officer for you.
