Works to a private dwelling or within its curtilage.
Central Government has made provision for certain works within the curtilage of a dwelling house to not need planning permission from the Local Planning Authority. This provision is known as 'permitted development' rights. However, in some instances the Local Planning Authority may have imposed a planning condition removing these rights - which means that planning permission would be required (but there is currently no fee payable to the Local Planning Authority to consider the application). You are therefore strongly advised to check whether any proposed extensions/alterations or outbuildings (including sheds, conservatories and car ports) require permission from the Local Planning Authority before you carry out any works.
Further advice is contained on the Do I need planning permission?/Pre-application advice page of the web site and on the Planning Portal, including their interactive house guides.
