Planning Departments within Local Authorities regulate the development and use of land through statutory legislation, government guidance and local policy guidelines. It is impossible to generalise with individual projects as there are a lot of factors to take into consideration. As an example, if a property has Listed Building Status or is located within a ‘Designated Area’ (e.g. ‘Conservation Area’ or ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’) the Permitted Development rules that normally apply do not in these situations.
