Planning permission for businesses
If you want to make any changes to your business premises, or if you want to work from home, you need to check whether you need planning permission.
The Department for Communities and Local Government has produced a Planning Practice Guidance which you can find on the GOV.UK website (external link).
For more information please see:
- Do I need planning permission? Information and guidance on whether planning permission is required
- Make a planning application - all you need to know about making a planning application, including which application form to use and what other information you need to submit with your application
- Pre-application advice - If you need more detailed advice and would like to speak to a Planning Officer about whether you need planning permission for the works you wish to carry out we offer various pre-application advice services
- Or alternatively visit the Planning permission pages on GOV.UK (external link)
