New legislation in February 2012 enable some householders to develop their homes without the need for planning permission. The changes include projects such as extensions, porches, sheds, garages, decking, fences and access ramps. There will still be certain restrictions relating to conservation areas and listed buildings. Although planning permission may not be required, there may be a requirement for a Building Warrant.
