“You can make certain types of minor changes to your house without needing to apply for planning permission. These are called "permitted development rights" and are described in this guide. They derive from a general planning permission granted not by the local authority but by Parliament. Bear in mind that the permitted development rights, which apply to many common projects for houses do not apply to flats, maisonettes or other buildings”. http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/permission/responsibilities/planningpermission/permitted. Dear Online Ombudsman Solicitor. Can you confirm the above regulation about permitted Development Rights is extant particularly the final sentence about not being applicable to flats.
