Permitted Development

Most homes have permitted development rights, and these mean that some types of work do not need planning permission.

As part of the service here at Amico Design, we will make any relevant permitted development applications on your behalf and act as your agent throughout the process. Your local council will usually have a two week validation period and the application will be reviewed within 10-12 weeks, after which you will receive a decision notice.

If your work complies with all of the requirements of permitted development then it would not require planning permission. This is a good option for many homeowners because it can offer a chance to build more than would otherwise be approved under planning. However it is very important to understand all the permitted development rules that you need to meet.

The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015, often known as GPDO 2015, is the Act of Parliament that puts in to law the type of building work that can be done without planning permission from the local authority.
