Build One or More Houses

New Construction

Building a new home always requires Planning Permission.  You will also generally need Planning Permission when renovating derelict buildings to be used as business premises or as living quarters. 

View information on extensions.

Still Have Questions?

If you would like to clarify whether you need Planning Permission for a given activity or you need help with the Planning Process, we strongly encourage you to attend a PrePlanning Meeting.
