Planning Permissions And Building Regulations

What do planning permissions allow you to do?

Planning permission allows you to build on or make a major change to your property whilst still complying with the law. If the changes proposed to your property need planning permission and you go ahead without having the planning permission in place then you may get an enforcement notice ordering you to undo all the changes that you have made to your property. This means you will have to foot the bill for returning the property to its original state as well as all the costs you'd incurred making the changes. Thus, not a smart move.
