Did you know that under new development control regulations that came into effect from 1 October 2008 that there are a huge number of projects that can be completed WITHOUT the need to apply for planning permission.
You are able to begin work on a range of home improvements starting tomorrow and the best part? … Nobody can object! No parish council ‘from Mars‘ objections, no jealous neighbour complaints, no unreasonable case law; you have the green light!
These new rules cover 95% of the housing stock in Great Britain … even if you live in an area normally restricted by over regulated red tape, there are a range of enhancements available to you!
And we’re not talking putting up a garden shed here. This little-know legislation means that many property owners can add a TWO Storey EXTENTION to their home and a TRIPLE GARAGE BLOCK if you have the room and there’s not a thing anyone can do about it.
This Government legislation was brought in to revitalize the recession-hit building industry, but ironically, no one thought to tell the general public, builders, architects and even the council planning departments are mostly unaware of the rules, although they are now coming up to speed … several years on!
The considered opinion of all property experts it that BAR NONE, the quickest and surest investment one can make is to improve your home and add value to it. However, the biggest barrier to this is the often overly restrictive, often archaic and nonsensical planning laws governing most property.
Case Example: A regular family home set within a famous National Park.
The Park Authority have come under intense pressure from local residents in the last few years due to their belligerent, oppressive, say “NO” to absolutely any kind of development whatsoever policy. People are literally receiving enforcement notices from overzealous, ill-read enforcement officers for putting up a garden shed … FACT!
Now the owners of this particular home had spent FIVE years and many, many thousands of pounds in failed planning applications. Each was turned down for the most obscure reasons; objections that simply made no sense in the real world.
They sat for hour upon hour with architects planning strategic operations of attack … all were rejected by the Park Authority. “NO! and that’s that!!!”
The end of the road was looming for this particular family as all the plans to improve the home were thwarted and a regretful decision had been floated to sell the property and move on to an area with a less fanatical regime.
When during a heated meeting at the planning office in a last-ditch attempt to just get something built a bombshell was dropped – a passing comment suddenly introduced them to the legislation we are outlining for you today … and the rest is history.
Within weeks work started:
The family now have the home they dreamed of and a recent valuation has revealed a very nice growth in equity, thank you very much!
Ironically, the projects they managed to build were far grander in scope and sheer square footage than any of the applications that were turned down. And if this property was not in the middle of a National Park the scope of improvements would be even grander!

The only exception to these rules are if your planning department have specifically rescinded your permitted development rights.
This comes in the form of a written covenant in your deeds. If it is not there in black and white stating that you ‘do not have permitted development rights’ â¦ then yours are intact.
YOU CAN BUILD WITHOUT THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS, NOT TO MENTION THE EXPENSE OF SEEKING PLANNING PERMISSION.
Furthermore, you’ll have access to all of the GAUK Online property auction services. Why not search our property databases and discover what property is being sold around the country, times, dates and alerts â¦ then use the Permitted Development we outline to add value to a bargain house?
Buy a house, start work the next day. No waiting for planning and no restrictions to a quick turnaround … Simpelz!
