Renovating Private Residential Property

Depending on the type of your property (e.g. detached house or flat) and the nature of renovation (e.g. earthcut or earthfill), you may need to apply for a planning permission. Find out if you need to obtain planning permission to renovate your private residential property.

Generally, making alterations or additions to your property would require a planning permission if the proposed works involve an increase in Gross Floor Area (GFA).
