Do you need Planning Permission or Building Control
The information on these pages and through the semi
detached interactive house guide, gives an initial indication
of whether formal planning permission or Building Regulations
approval is needed. The advice given is an introductory guide
and is not a definitive source of legal information.
A terrace and shop interactive tool is also available by
visiting the Planning
Portal's interactive terrace house guide webpage .
Those users who are visiting this page using an IOS or Android

available on the Planning
Portal's Common Projects webpage.
Please be aware that if your development is creating over 100
square metres of new floor area or new dwellings, it may be liable

If your proposal is covered under permitted development (does
not require planning permission) have a look at the council's
Design Guide SPD (January 2012) (PDF 1.2Mb). This supplementary
planning document will act as ‘good practice’ guidance to help
achieve the Council’s aim to promote high quality design and
construction in Redbridge.
The permitted development allowances described here apply to
houses not flats, maisonettes or other buildings. You are advised
to check whether permitted development rights apply - they may have
been removed by an Article 4 Direction,
or whether other consents are required because you live in a
conservation area or a listed building.
